The NDEB examinations don't entail any residency requirements.

Determining the pathway for certification relies on whether you aim to become a dentist or dental specialist, and whether you've graduated from an accredited or non-accredited dental program. Visit the "How to Become a Dentist in Canada" page, answer a few quick questions, and it'll guide you toward the appropriate pathway.

If your country isn't listed, you'll need to provide all relevant details about your program and university, including any relevant links. The NDEB will assess your eligibility for the Equivalency Process, which typically takes a few weeks.

The NDEB is unable to offer help in securing visas or any necessary travel documents required for examination participation.

To change your name with the NDEB, you'll need to send a Name Change Form along with the specified documents mentioned on the form to the NDEB office via mail or courier.

The duration for completing the Equivalency Process differs for each individual. Initially, the application and credential verification take about 18 weeks if all submissions are accurate in the first attempt. Following this, there are three examinations to undertake. The timeline for completing these exams depends on when one can register and the number of attempts needed to pass each examination.

Individual fees aren't meant to support other exams, and they undergo annual reviews for potential adjustments when needed.

Tax receipts are issued yearly and can be accessed via the "miscellaneous" section in your NDEBConnect account.

The fee for the Virtual OSCE is $2000.
