Dental School and Dental Society Support
Many dental schools and dental societies offer support before, during, and after the clinical boards. In addition to the remediation programs available at many of the dental schools, some schools offer pre-graduation exams and mock boards to help in your preparation. Some dental societies offer programs to help you prepare for your exam such as seminars, which give tips on taking the boards.
