In anticipation of 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 Integrated National Board Dental Examination (INBDE) is now available. The NBDE Part I is no longer available and Part II will be discontinued on August 1, 2022.
