"The Joint Commission on National Dental Examinations will restructure the Part I exam beginning in January 2007.
Highlights of the new Part I exam are:
1. Assesses knowledge and problem solving skills
2. Comprehensive Format
3. 20% of questions will be embedded in testlets (clinical scenario followed by multiple choice questions)
Please note that candidates who do not successfully complete the new Part I exam will be required to re-take the ENTIRE exam. Also note that the Part I exam will be offered electronically ONLY beginning in January 2007.
For more information please see the ADA website, under educational and testing services, at www.ada.org"
