College of Diplomates (CDABO) Prep Course for the ABO Clinical Exam 

The College (CDABO) is pleased to offer a preparatory course for individuals interested in taking the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) Scenario-based Oral Clinical Examination to achieve board certification.  The ABO Written Examination never expires; if you have previously successfully completed this component, you are now ready to take the Clinical Examination.

The course outline will consist of an overview of the new examination format and how to prepare.  Review of the Discrepancy Index, Cast-Radiography Evaluation and Case Management Form will take place, and will include a hands-on practice with calibration models. References will be given to materials and videos to understand dental and skeletal changes that occur with growth and interpretation of cephalometric superimpositions.  A mock board with sample case questions and answers will be discussed, as will critical thinking skills and examination scoring.

This is a four hour course to assist attendees in preparing for the new exam format.  Participants will receive 4 CE credits for their participation.

Registration fee includes one ABO measuring gauge per registrant provided at the exam.  Models are provided for hands-on use during the course.

Space is limited to 70, assigned on a first-come basis.  ACT NOW to reserve your spot in the class.

Cancellation Refund Policy:  Since space is limited, there is no refund for cancellations after September 25, 2020.
