Hi Friends::luck:

Has any one heard that the admission policy for International Dentists in US dental Schools is going to change from 2010?
One Friend told me that the NDBE score will not be of importantce any more.You will be named a PASS or FAIL applicant.Your NDBE score will not be considered any more.
Instead, they will consider your GPA, Hand Skills and CV as important selection factors.

Any information regarding this isuue would be really appreciated.

on page 3 of this newsletter they explained all score reporting changes starting 1st January 2010

" Beginning January 1, 2010 candidate performance will be reported to candidates, state boards, and dental schools only as pass or fail.
Standard scores will​
no longer be developed or reported. Further, the Joint Commission has decided to continue to report raw score performance information in the disciplines covered on the examinations for failing candidates only. This information on failing candidates will be provided to candidates and dental schools."
