    hi i'm actually a pre dental student i haven't apply or attend a dental school yet
    i have a question about how dental school works and what after graduate from dental school

    i thought after finishing my four years at dental school i would choose any of the 50 states to get the residency test and make a test and then start being working as a dentist at this state, is that true or my grades in the dental school play a role in the game

    Also does the dental school affect which state i want to live and work for example if i graduate from University of Pennsylvania dental school can i return again to CA and start working as a dentist or it will be difficult and better to attend a dental school in CA ?

    You're talking about separate tests, the NBDE Part 1/2 is different from the WREB/NERB.

    NBDE Part 1 and Part 2 are the national board exams that you take during and at the end of dental school. These exams are pass/fail, multiple choice and taken on the computer at a Prometric Center.

    Grades don't matter, how much you study (NBDE) and clinical skills (WREB) matter.

    To practice in a state, you must also fulfill state requirements. To practice in California for example, you must currently pass the WREB. This exam consists of
    However, these requirements may change in the next few years.
