Hi everybody!

Just wanted to let you know that If you are a Canadian dentist and you passed the NDBE (canadian board), you are not required to take the NERB in Michigan/New York. I'm so happy!! This is such a good news as I don't have to take NERB anymore!

I can now apply to get my license!!

Good luck for all of you in NERB/WREB examination! I know how stressful It can be to prepare for that!

This is probably a dumb question, but in order to practice in Canada, do you have to take the Canadian boards even if you've already passed the NERB? i.e. the reverse scenario...just curious.

How about the new mandatory PGY-1 law in New York ? Even New York grads can't get licensed by NERB's anymore ...
