Dental Licensure Objective Structured Clinical Examination (DLOSCE)

Apply Soon

In anticipation of the upcoming flu season and potential increase in restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, all testing candidates planning to test during the winter months of 2021 should submit their application and schedule a testing appointment as soon as possible. There is no guarantee that appointments will not be canceled or rescheduled should restrictions increase, but this ensures the best selection of available testing appointments.
The Dental Licensure Objective Structured Clinical Examination (DLOSCE) is a high-stakes licensure examination which requires candidates to use their clinical skills to successfully complete one or more dental problem solving tasks. It is designed to provide information to US dental boards concerning whether a candidate for dental licensure possesses the necessary level of clinical skills to safely practice entry-level dentistry.
