Does anyone know what the word is on PGY1 in cali?
Someone sent me this from the CDA:
CDA Update on PGY-1 Licensure in California (SB 683) April 20, 2007
In order to answer some questions regarding the use of PGY-1 as a licensure pathway in
CA, the CDA Student Delegation has compiled the following information from CDA's
Public Policy Division. The information below represents CDA's current understanding
of how and when the PGY-1 legislation will likely be implemented. If changes occur in
the future, you will be made aware as the details become available.
Please contact your CDA Student Representative if you have any further questions.
1) I heard PGY-1 was effective as of January 1, 2007. Why is it not fully
Although PGY-1 became effective January 1, 2007, the Dental Board of
California (DBC) still needs to develop a "sign-off" form to be completed by the
residency program director, assessing the student's core competencies (similar to
the criteria evaluated when a candidate takes the WREB or state exam). That form
is currently being developed, but that, combined with the implementation of the
necessary regulations, will take some time, and may possibly not be completed
until next summer/fall (2008).
2) What does that mean if I am starting an AEGD or GPR program this year?
If you sign up for a 1-year residency program beginning this May, the DBC may
not be ready to accept your application when you are finished in April/May 2008.
Therefore, if you plan to practice immediately after completing your residency in
2008, you may still need to take a WREB or state licensing exam.
3) Do any programs require a student to have a license before entering?
Yes, there are some residency programs that will continue to require a student to
obtain a license either before they enter the program or before their year is
complete. This may be due to their own policies or federal requirements (as in the
case of the VA programs). Therefore, it is very important for each student to ask
their program whether they are required to obtain a license before their residency
Since this issue is being handled by the DBC, we suggest that students periodically check
the Board's website for updates:

In short, we probably won't know for sure until summer/fall of 2008.
