Passing the National Board Dental Examination (NBDE) Parts I and II is a
basic requirement for initial dental licensure in the United States. Most dental
students take the Part II exam during their final year of dental school.
The National Board Dental Examination Part II is a comprehensive examination
that tests the material you have learned in both your preclinical and
clinical years. The Part II examination comprises of 500 multiple choice test
items in total. The basic structure of the NBDE Part II is divided into two sections.
The discipline-based component (Component A) consists of 400 items,
and the case-based component (Component B) includes 100 items based on
approximately 10 case problems. 70% of these Component B cases are based
on adults and 30% deal with pediatric issues. The test has been developed so
that 15% of Component B test questions will cover topics related to the management
of medically compromised adults and children.
The clinical dental sciences tested in the NBDE Part II include operative
dentistry, pharmacology, endodontics, periodontics, oral and maxillofacial
surgery and pain control, prosthodontics, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry and
oral diagnosis, oral pathology/dental radiology, and patient management
(behavioral science/dental public health and occupational safety). About 30%
of the items tested in NBDE Part II will have references applicable to the
basic sciences and 30% will be multidisciplinary.
The test is no longer offered in a print format. However, the computerized
NBDE Part II is offered all year-round by Thompson Prometric at Prometric
Testing Centers. The examination must be scheduled on 2 consecutive days.
