If you're interested in taking an NBDE course, Varsity Tutors may have the ideal options for you! The National Board Dental Examination or NBDE is offered to dentistry students and professionals. It is mandatory in order to earn your dental license. Some postgraduate dental programs may also expect you to take this test. In addition, dentists trained outside of the United States must pass the NBDE to apply for advanced dental school programs in the US. The exam operates on a PASS/FAIL scoring basis that only provides a score to students who fail the test. The NBDE is an in-depth exam that spans four main subject areas. If you are interested in NBDE prep classes, get in touch, and we can connect with an expert instructor. With NBDE courses, you may be able to make your study sessions more efficient.

The NBDE is a comprehensive exam that comes in two parts: NBDE 1 and NBDE 2. You can spend your NBDE class reviewing the contents of each section, which are illustrated below:

Each NBDE prep course is custom-tailored to fit the individual student. Your private tutor can take the time to get to know your learning style and interests to identify the best approach to your study sessions. They can even take the time to assess your knowledge to pinpoint the areas in which you have the most room for improvement. One-on-one NBDE classes can give you valuable insight into your educational needs, as well as allow you expert support as you build your skills. You are the sole focus of each test prep course with your instructor.

There is a wide range of concepts covered in the NBDE. You can freely review the topics throughout your NBDE prep class, such as the ones listed below:

You can decide what you review during each NBDE course. Your instructor can readily adjust to your preferences, whether you'd rather review operative dentistry and pain control or behavioral science as it relates to patient management. Your tutor can patiently walk you through the exam, explaining different types of problems and demonstrating different ways to approach the questions. NBDE classes can work at a pace that you are comfortable with, allowing you to ask questions and receive ongoing feedback from your instructor.

Your tutor can explain material in a variety of ways until you feel confident in your knowledge. You may spend time in NBDE prep courses taking practice tests or solving sample problems, as well as engaging with unique learning tools and activities to keep you interested as you develop. Your instructor may introduce you to testing strategies that may allow you to work more efficiently during the exam, which can translate to valuable professional skills in time management.
