Dental Exam Calendar

In order to register for any portion of the Dental Exam candidates will need to create an online profile. A complete CDCA profile includes a mandatory photo, proof of graduation, and payment of the appropriate fees.

The application process must be completed on or before the application deadline to avoid late registration fees. All requests to withdraw from the examination must be received by the application deadline to receive a refund. Candidates requesting to withdraw after the application deadline will be charged a $100 admin fee and have their paid exam fees applied to a future examination.

Adjusted Traditional Dental Exam Schedule

The following is a list of traditional examination sites and dates, some affected by mandated COVID-19 closures. CDCA is working diligently to reschedule all examinations. New dates provided are subject to change due to local conditions. You may search by school, city, or state abbreviation in the search box or use "Previous" and "Next".
