NBDE Part I and Part II General Information

Important Note Concerning Periodontics Terminology: 

In 2017, the American Academy of Periodontology introduced new classifications. These new classifications will be implemented in the summer of 2020. Download the classifications below.

During the transition period, it is recommended that individuals become knowledgeable with both sets of classifications, because individual researchers, practitioners, and existing textbooks can communicate information using either set of classifications. Periodontal educators recommend that individuals refer to the 2017 World Workshop On the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions on the American Academy of Periodontology website
