    Hi Friends
    I did my B.D.S from India (4 years + 1 year rotating internship). Planning to take Step 1
    in July 2002. Applied for ECE credential evaluations with all the 4 years certificates,
    though I completed internship I have not received the certificate yet. Got a reply
    from ECE, saying that I have to submit the internship certificate. Is it really a
    must to take step 1. Has anybody faced similar problem.
    Please advice time is running out

    Thanks in Advance

    If "Step 1" is the National Board Dental Examination, YES, it is a must to have your ECE done to become eligible to take the test.

    WHat you can do is contact the institution responsible for your residency/internship and request a letter or other type of document while your certificate is not ready.

    Good luck,
