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 processing fee.

For multiple-day exams, scheduling requests must be received by the registration deadline through our Contact us platform. Scheduling requests are not guaranteed.

If “Wait List” is noted in the Status column, you can request to be put on the waiting list by clicking the link. Be sure to include the name of the school you request in your message. NOTE: Once you send a message your name will be added to the waiting list, you do not need to email to confirm or follow-up. If a spot becomes available, you will receive a message from our Candidate Services Team.

All exams and waiting list requests are managed by the CDCA, host schools have no participation in the registration process and should not be contacted about registration and scheduling. Contacting the host school may result in you being moved to the bottom of the waiting list. A waitlist is not available for locations that are closed to outside students.
