There have been significant changes to the 2020 ACS Protocol and participants should review the revised Protocol carefully.
Changes to the Protocol include, but are not limited to:
- replacing the lunch break with a 30-minute break.
- examinees will no longer be able to share dental instruments or unused dental materials.
- updates to the entire section on infection control and safety requirement.
- examinees are strongly encouraged to provide their own amalgamator.
Considering COVID-19, clinical attire is now a requirement for the examination. The NDEB is monitoring developments regarding COVID-19 closely and will be implementing additional health and safety for the ACS that are in-line with federal and provincial public health guidelines. These will be available to participants closer to the examination date.
The ACS 2020 Protocol is also available for download from your online profile. Examinees must review it prior to the examination.
