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.

To avoid late registration fees, the application process must be completed before the registration deadline to allow time for verification. 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.
