    [SIZE=+1]ADC Examinations[/SIZE]
    The Australian Dental Council (ADC) is the organization responsible for assessing overseas trained dentists to enable them to obtain registration in Australia. The ADC also accredits Australian Dental Schools courses leading to registrable qualifications. The dental boards, the dental schools, the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons, the Australian Dental Association, the Australian Dental & Oral Health Therapists Association and the Dental Hygienists Association of Australia are represented on the ADC.
    Eligibility criteria
    Overseas trained dentists are eligible to undertake the ADC examination procedure if they have completed and passed a dental degree which included at least four years' full-time academic study at a university recognised by the ADC and are registered as a dentist in their country of training or practice.
    Immune Status
    Australian dental institutions are committed to, and have a responsibility to ensure that staff and patients are safeguarded.
    Prior to giving an ADC candidate access to clinical facilities for examination purposes, dental hospitals may require a routine assessment of disease history and immune status. This is already in place in some States.
    Immunization, immune response to immunization, and disease history for tuberculosis, rubella, measles, mumps, chickenpox, herpes simplex virus, and hepatitis B virus may need to be documented.
    Some States require that health care workers should be immunized for Hepatitis B and have demonstrated levels of immunity. All operators who will treat patients will be expected to not pose a risk of Hep B transmission to patients or staff. In some States a copy of dates of records of completed Hep B immunizations and of serological screen, to confirm immunity, must be provided prior to an examination. All information provided to the dental hospital remains confidential.
    Candidates should ensure that they know their status and advise the ADC if they anticipate that they may not be able to meet the hospitals’ requirements.
    Examination Procedures
    The ADC examination procedures have been developed specifically to assess the qualifications of overseas trained dentists whose qualifications are not accepted as a basis for registration by Australian Dental Boards.
    The examination procedure consists of three parts an Occupational English Test (OET); a Preliminary Examination (Multiple Choice Questions and Short Answer questions); and a Final Examination(Clinical). These must be taken sequentially.
    Occupational English Test (OET)
    A comprehensive knowledge of English is essential to the practice of dentistry in Australia. All overseas trained dentists (regardless of country of training) are required to pass the Occupational English Test (OET) prior to acceptance into the Australian Dental Council examinations. Since 01 January 2006 exemptions are no longer granted.*

    The purpose of the OET is to assess a candidate’s understanding and use of English in the professional workplace. The OET assesses both written and spoken English in four categories: reading, writing, listening and speaking. All four categories must be passed at an ‘A’ or ‘B’ level to achieve an overall satisfactory pass in the test.
    No other English tests are accepted by the ADC. A pass in the OET is valid for two years. Candidates are required to hold a valid OET pass at the closing date of each exam stage applied for, ie at both Preliminary and Final Exam. No exemptions will be granted.*
    * Candidates previously granted an exemption, or with OET results older than two years, will be required to provide a current satisfactory OET pass.
    The OET is administered by the OET Centre. An application form and information on fees, venues and dates can be obtained from:
    The OET Centre
    Level 3, 7 Bowen Crescent
    Melbourne, Vic 3004
    Postal Address: GPO Box 372F, Melbourne Vic 3001
    Tel + 61 3 9825 3800
    Fax + 61 3 9825 3899
    Web-site: http://www.occupationalenglishtest.org/

    You must pass this test before you proceed to the Preliminary Examination. "A pass is valid for 2 years. Other English tests are not accepted."
    Preliminary Examination
    The Preliminary Examination is a written examination in multiple choice and short written answer format. It is designed to test your knowledge of the practice of dentistry and of clinical and technical procedures as they are practised in Australia. Previous examination papers are not available, but sample multiple choice questions are made available to enrolled candidates.
    Unlimited attempts are permitted for this examination. A pass is valid for three years. In order to be eligible to attempt the Preliminary Examination, at the closing date for the exam you must have a satisfactory pass in the OET (valid for two years).
    Final Examination - Clinical
    In order to be eligible to sit for the Final Examination, at the closing date for the exam you must have passed the Preliminary Examination (pass valid for 3 years) and have a satisfactory pass in the OET (valid for two years).
    The Clinical examination is held over three to six days and includes the following three blocks:

    • Conservative Dentistry - Operative Dentistry and Paediatric Dentistry;
    • Treatment Planning -including consideration of Periodontics and Removable Prosthodontics;
    • Oral Surgery, Oral Diagnosis and Radiology.
    Aspects of all clinical disciplines such as Orthodontics, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology and Pharmacology will be included where appropriate (practical and/or theoretical and/or viva voce). You will be examined at a level no less than that reached by graduates from Australian universities.
    Unlimited attempts are permitted for this examination but but you must satisfy the eligibility requirements (above) for each attempt.
    In the event that applications exceed available places in this examination, a system of priority will be applied:

    • first attempt candidates will have priority over repeat attempt candidates;
    • the scheduling of first attempt candidates will take into consideration the time since they sat and qualified at the Preliminary Examinations (i.e. shorter time period)
    • candidates will be ranked in merit order of their overall score achieved in the Preliminary Examination;
    • candidates with fewer repeat attempts will have priority over candidates with a higher number of repeat attempts.
    Candidates will be notified of acceptance, the venue and times at least one month before the examination date.
    Examination Venues and Training
    If you live overseas, you may take the OET and the ADC Preliminary Examination at an overseas venue. Availability of venues varies and some venues may not be available for a particular session. All visa and travel arrangements are the responsibility of the candidate. Candidates should ensure that they are able to travel to the nominated venue. If you are in Australia, you can sit both these examinations in any of the State capital cities and some larger provincial centres.
    The Preliminary Examination is usually held in the first week of March and in the first week of September each year. You are allowed unlimited attempts at this examination, but a new fee must be paid for each attempt.
    The Final Examination is held only in Australia. Candidates resident outside Australia may be able to obtain a temporary entry visa, at their own expense, to cover the trip to Australia to attend the examination. You are allowed unlimited attempts at this Examination, but a new fee must be paid for each attempt.
    ADC Certificate
    An ADC Certificate is issued upon successful completion of the ADC examination procedure. The ADC Certificate entitles you to apply for registration with any of the Australian Dental Boards.
    How to Apply
    To obtain an application form for assessment of your eligibility to complete the ADC examination process, please download it by clicking on the following link: Application for Assessment
    Send all Applications for Assessment's to: Australian Dental Council (ADC) Ground Floor, 120 Jolimont Road East Melbourne Vic 3002, Australia
    For further enquiries please email: [email protected]
    [SIZE=+1]Fees[/SIZE]
    All fees paid must be by bank cheque in Australian dollars made payable to The Australian Dental Council, Australian money order, or by credit card (Visa or MasterCard only).

    For current information on the Occupational English Test (OET) fee, you should contact:
    OET Level 3, 7 Bowen Crescent Melbourne, Vic 3004 Postal Address: GPO Box 372F, Melbourne 3001 Tel + 61 3 9825 3800 Fax + 61 3 9825 3899 Web-site: http://www.oet.com.au Each fee for the OET, ADC Preliminary and ADC Final Examination allows only one attempt at the examination. Withdrawal from any examination may result in a cancellation fee being charged.
    All visa and travel arrangements are the responsibility of the candidate. Candidates should ensure that they are able to travel to the nominated venues. Failure to undertake an examination because of an inability to obtain necessary visas or to arrange travel, etc will be considered a withdrawal and fees will apply. :):) Cheers !! :):)

    What is the OET?
    The Occupational English Test (OET) is a language test for overseas qualified medical and health professionals whose first language is not English. The Test measures the language competency of health professionals who are seeking registration and the ability to practise in an English-speaking context

    • Currently, it assesses English language competency as it is used in the following professions in Australia: Dentistry
    • Pharmacy
    • Dietetics
    • Podiatry
    • Medicine
    • Physiotherapy
    • Nursing
    • Radiography
    • Occupational
    • Therapy Speech
    • Pathology Optometry and
    • Veterinary Science
    The test is conducted seven times a year in over 40 locations throughout the world, including Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai in India. In 2009, the test will be conducted in January, March, May, June, August, October and November.
    The OET is made up of four sub-tests: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking.
    You receive results for the four sub-tests that make up the OET as one of five grades – A to E. A is the highest grade, E is the lowest.
    There are descriptions for each grade on the printed Statement of Results you receive:


    • Very high level of performance
    • High level of performance; i.e., able to use English with fluency and accuracy adequate for professional needs
    • Good level of performance; however, not acceptable to a range of health and medical councils
    • Moderate level of performance: requires improvement
    • Low level of performance: requires considerable improvement
    There is no overall grade; you receive a separate grade for each sub-test you take.
    The written papers are normally scheduled in the morning starting at 9.00am. The Listening, Reading and Writing sub-tests are completed by 1.00pm. The individual Speaking interviews are timetabled for the afternoon, from around 1.00pm until 6.00pm. You must be available for the whole of this period; the exact time of your interview is sent to you with the detailed venue information.
    Test fee for OET is Aus. $ 775
    For an additional score report, the fee is Aus. $ 35.
    To apply for the test, one has to apply (and make payment online) at the following link:Click Here

    I got this "it's now or never" feeling.

    If I'm not going to give it a shot now, I probably won't do it at all.

    So ... I need study partners in ISRAEL

    Goal:
    OET - October 2009 ==> Preliminary exam - March 2010 ==> Clinical Exam

    If you're serious about it, mail me.

    preliminary preparation...

    1)----Instead of going thru text books and reading all the irrelevant things prefer to go thru the Dental decks to start with , where they have beatifull explanation of the answers along with the , its subject wise in that so u can keep track of subjects u have covered also....here one important thing is U look into the question then next page is the answer ,,,,i say u go thru the explanation once even if u know the answer(people tend to skip explanation when they know the answers)... so this vil revise almost everything of BDS

    2)---u'l get bored bored reading the dental decks... if read it continuously so in between u can go thru the Therapeutic guidelines, very good book, cuz its all in Australian standard wat they maintain. this vil help both for MCq and SAQ

    3)then u can go thru the Edward Odell clinical problems in Dentistry, 56 different cases case by case with pictures understand it , especially the management part of it..

    4)DO read Medical problems in Dentistry by Cawson and scully, its actually kind of a General Medicine text book no need to go thru every aspect of it good thing is they have given Dental aspect for every medical problem... u just need to go thru that
    explanation of Bisphosphanates and Anti depressants and CJD is given good in this book)

    5)Cawson Mcq's


    6)------ Once u r done with the DECKs all the subjects .... u can go thru the 1000MCQ's

    :):)CHEERS!!

    Hi VINKY84, I am preparing for my clinical exam , if you and good knowledge of the Books I suggested , it will be easy for you to clear the Theory examination. The latest 2010 MCQ means , you must read it 35 to 45 % of questions come from these. There is a company named Dentalsupply prepare a fresh Book after every exam, if you read that you will have less problem also they suggest you the kind of Books you need to read. The mail address of the Dentalsupply is dentalsupply at mail dot com
    Regarding the N.D.B.E material and Kaplans clinical notes got nothing to do with ADC Theory examination these Books and notes are for Canada and USA Exams. Most people get confused and read unwanted stuff and waste the time. I am fully aware of N.D.B.E material and read it but it was of no help to me.
    Regarding the Books
    Comprehensive review of dentistry by Louis Boucher
    Dentistry by R.A. Cawson
    Clinical Problem Solving in Dentistry by Edward Odell edition-3
    The Handbook of paediatric dentistry by Angus C. Cameron & Richard P. Widmer the latest edition
    Hope you are happy with the answer. if you still need some thing email me , I will only answer when I am free .
    Thanks

    Please don’t make the people panic. ADC want to test your basic knowledge and if you are good in cavity preparation and related viva , you are through. There is no need of any Great skill but you should know the basic concept of cavity preparation. Those who are poor in cavity preparation then read Sturdevant's Art and Science of Operative Dentistry and make sure you understand each and every step of preparation for class 2, class 3 and complex as well as crown preparation. If you need further please email me . I will only reply when I am free as I am busy preparing for the clinical.
