    Hello people,

    Has anyone heard about the California bench test being extended till 2005? It has not been announced on the website as yet. Anybody with additional info related to this, please reply to my post.

    Thanks!

    Yes, it is the same bench test I'm talking about. The website of California licensing board says it lasts till 2004 for now.

    check this is what is stated...
    Effective January 1, 2004, The Dental Board of California will no longer administer the Restorative Technique Examination, however graduates of non-accredited dental schools can apply directly to take the clinical dental licensure examination if the Board has certified their non-accredited dental school as equivalent to accredited dental schools.

    i read that but the last posted exam is Oct.31 to Nov.2 2003 unless they add another exam for Jan. 2004 Also I asked them about that accreditation thing they replied that to date they have not accredited a single school as equivalent to US dentaal school bec. they have never needed to due to the existence of the bench test..

    so if you want to get licensed in Calif. you should aim for passing the bench test this year.. if you have questions you can write them directly like I did and they will answer you.
