also the new scoring system now , conjunctive ....
wreb says : "The only significant change is that candidates will now be required to score the equivalent of 75% in every section. Criteria has been adjusted to correspond to the new scoring scale. The five sections are: Operative (2 procedures), Endodontics (2 teeth), Periodontics (Assessment and Treatment), Prosthodontics, and Patient Assessment and Treatment Planning."
i wonder is this was a change from last year wreb ??
have anyone heard any news about 2009 wreb ,any changes we should consider??

actually , wreb has changed their whole website and 2009 dates are announced but the detailed new process of registration online is not obvious yet ? but it seems straight forward ....for the csw exam they recommend taking it 10days before the exam date ...

I just took the exam in Dec at USC. got my patients thru Patient Finding Service out of LA. I was nervous to use them after reading a previous post here, but had already paid deposit and fees to them.
I recieved good patients from them and the review class really really helped get ready for the test.:luck:

hi guys,
I think the changes made in WREB i.e each section needs 75% as a passing score makes it much harder than before,right? until 2008 it was atleast overall 75% as a passing score...
Post ur ideas what you think about the new changes so that we can share some info.

Hi everyone,

I am new to SDN. I graduated from dental school 10 years ago and have been out of practice for 9 years raising a family. I would like to get back, but I need some practice. I am not licensed in Tx, so I plan to take the WREB. If anyone has WREB notes especialy for the 2 computer simulated sections or any instruments or supplies that they can sell/ donate, please contact me. Also if any other female dentists have taken time off for their family and got back in, please reply. Any other dentists taking the WREB in Dallas, Tx?

the candidate guide says you have to have all instruments sterilized between pts. since we have to provide our own hand pieces is that mean we should have 2 hand pieces (one for each restorative procedure)?

Do you know how many people take the endo exam in that section and how many xray machines are there?

What about dark room how many are there?

Is there usually a line?

Can you take a cup of fixer and leave it in your table with you during the exam?

If you are doing back-to-back operative, then it *could* mean that. You might also have the school you are taking it at sterilize your instruments (which doesn't take that long). Or, you might do your operative on different days.

I have an Acadental WREB typodont that is for sale. It has 4 of the 6 sextants with it (2 were used for my WREB exam last year), and you'll need to buy more fixing gel and apex putty, although I have a little of those left over. Probably enough for one tooth.

Hi There,

I have a patient that I would like to use for the wreb that I was counting on and she recently told me she is pregnant. I don't have any other patients as of now and am worried if I don't find another patient, what is your opinion of me using a patient that is pregnant? I looked at the manual, and it said that it is okay to use a patient that is pregnant if we have a written consent from the patient's doctor. Do you guys know of any one that has been in this situation? I am going to try to see if I can bother some of my neighbors to screen since I am freaking out about this, but if i cant find someone else, should I use my patient that is pregnant?

HELP I AM FREAKING OUT!

Hello everyone, greetings from Miami. I am going to take the WREB in Dec 09, if any member of this forum has or knows someone that has taken a WREB PREPARATION COURSE, I am very interested in buying your used study material provided at such course. The WREB is usually offered here in Miami every year around March, this year will not be offered here and they told me it might never be offered again (lucky me) in consecuence appears that there will not be any prep courses either. Please help, I am honestly a little lost regarding this exam, any kind of advice is defenitely going to help and i would appreciate.
Thanks a lot

I have a bunch of lesions that are really really close to the DEJ but not fully through it, like the WREB wants. Everyone keeps saying they are "perfect NERB lesions, but not big enough for the WREB". Anyone know how strict they really are with the lesions? I know what the rules say but at the same time I obviously want to restore the smallest lesion possible :)

Thanks!! Wish me luck!!!!

If they are just barely to the DEJ, they will be fine. Trust me, I've taken the WREB twice and I freaked out (like most of us do) both times about radiographs. Both times I thought I had lesions that would not get accepted, but had no problems.

It should be to the DEJ clearly (but it doesn't have to be a huge lesion). All of mine had small triangles that touched the DEJ. I thought they wouldn't pass, but they were all accepted. 1/2 through enamel does not fly for the WREB.
