Oral Clinical Examination Update:

July 29, 2020 - As the pandemic continues to bring challenges to us all. While there are predictions of how the virus will affect the US and the rest of the world, there is still uncertainty. After much consideration, the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) Board of Directors plans to conduct the next Oral Clinical Examination (OCE) in the fall of 2021 at a testing center.

There are many details to arrange during these complicated and dynamic times. As soon as we have more details, we will post them on the website. Thank you for your patience as we strive to make the best choices for pediatric dentists and children, who remain the heart of our mission.

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