    Any one of you who has taken WREB please help me .I took WREB 2 weeks ago and i got 2 pink slips both for demineralisation other than that no rejections no late penalties and no other disasters .However my patient had generalised demineralisation of all his teeth (white spots) and i made a note to the examiner also .When floor examiner came over he said "you may not be penalised for this or may be 1 point and later I asked other floor examiners and they said different things like "may be 3 points'etc .I dont know whats going to happen Iam very nervous .Even those demineralisations are really very small like around 1 mm small spot
    Can someone please tell me if am going to pass.Iam just restless

    I think you'll pass, but either you left sound tooth structure or you didn't. I'm not sure how they'll grade this, but even if they take off 3 points from your operative score, you'll probably still be fine (especially if you nailed every other part of the exam).

    you might loose 1 point since you mentioned it and they knew that
    however, if you didn't mention in your papers,
    dimineralization = leaving cavity and you would loose alot of point
    good that to told them

    I am giving my wrebs in two weeks. So, can u tell me what's the deal with the demineralization. Do we leave them and tell the examiners that it's sound tooth stucture or what?

    Let us know how you do, especially with the new treatment planning exam.

    Why don't you just call UCLA and ask them? The information in the school section is probably up-to-date and correct, but you should call the school's WREB contact to make sure. That's an easier way to go about it rather than waiting for a response here.
