For dental licensure in Texas after completing ADEX exam and dental school- Does anyone know whether the Perio scaling portion of ADEX is required for licensure in the state of Texas, or does the DSE OSCE fulfill this requirement? I ask because the CDCA website states that “perio is evaluated by DSE OSCE“ under the Texas requirements, but the Texas board says that all parts of the exam are required. I am confused by the contradiction, so I was wondering if anyone else knows exactly what is required for a Texas dental license as of 4/9/21 in regards to the perio evaluation.

I was in the same boat, I took perio portion just in case.
