2020 Oral Clinical Examination Cancelled

Posted: 6/12/2020

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the Oral Clinical Examination (OCE) scheduled in 2020.

As of today, ABPD’s testing center cannot guarantee that the examination will occur this September and has suggested that the Board consider rescheduling to the spring of 2021. In respect of everyone’s time and safety, the Board concluded that cancelling the OCE is the safe and responsible action for this year. We will continue to closely monitor information provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and investigate all options to conduct an examination in the future. Once a decision is made, we will reach out to those scheduled to take the examination as soon as we have additional information.

Board Candidates will receive a full refund, and will be contacted by an ABPD staff member in the next few weeks. In the meantime, please feel free to contact Headquarters via email, info@abpd.org, with any questions.

ABPD extends our best wishes to you and we appreciate your patience and understanding. Stay healthy!
