2020 Qualifying Examination Date Announced

Posted: 6/11/2020

The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) is pleased to announce we have rescheduled the 2020 Qualifying Examination (QE). The examination will take place on August 19, 2020.

ABPD has carefully investigated options for the delivery of the 2020 QE. With the uncertainty of the global pandemic, social distancing requirements and other restrictions, we decided to move forward with two different delivery options for the examination. We hope these options will give our candidates and applicants flexibility when rescheduling the examination.

Live Online Proctoring (LOP) – ABPD has partnered with Scantron/Examinty to allow candidates to complete the examination from a remote location, such as their home or office, using their own computer and a stable internet connection.

Scantron Network of Testing CentersThis option is a traditional testing center with a different network of test centers. Click here to search by location; availability may be limited with social distancing requirements of 50% capacity.

Candidates and applicants will not be required to select an option until exam testing registration opens on July 1, 2020. Additional information regarding registration and the next steps will be emailed in the next few weeks.

The testing period will still be 4 hours, but the exam will be broken into two sections allowing for a break. The QE will follow the same examination specifications with 200 multiple-choice questions and blueprint located in the QE overview.

Registrants may cancel and receive a full refund up until July 15, 2020.
