2016 QE Examinees
Are you a resident wondering why you need to apply for Board Candidacy?
- The reason you must apply for Board Candidacy is because the ADA Council on Dental Education and Licensure (CDEL) requires that the results of the examination only be released after the resident has completed the advanced education program and applied for candidacy.
- As a courtesy, ABPD allows those nearing the end of their residencies to participate in the Qualifying Examination before they are “qualified by credentials”. Therefore, the process is reversed for residents; the examination precedes becoming a candidate.
ABPD wants you to receive your Qualifying Examination results as soon as you complete your program.
