You can't take the exam in 2009? Are you sure? As far as I know u can take the NBDE twice in a calender year.

No, you can take the exam thrice in a calendar year but there should be a gap of 3 months between attempts. But your case is a little different since you have 3 failed attempts.
Following is the quote from ADA's website:

"You must wait 90 days between examination attempts. National Board candidates who have failed NBDE Part I three times must wait 12 months before retesting. Please refer to the [FONT=Times New Roman,Times New Roman]Candidate Guide .for specific details. Beginning January 2010, a candidate who has received a passing score may not retest unless he or she provides evidence that he or she must retest for purposes of licensure. "
Please perform a search on this forum to get info on the NBDE Pass/Fail stuff.
