Over the last nine years, 99.9% of our DMD students passed the NBDE Part 1 on their first attempt. The remarkable first-time pass rate for this exam is due to a number of variables, but most importantly the dedication and hard work of our students and the commitment of our faculty in supporting our student body through the comprehensive dental education of our DMD program.

The National Board Dental Examination

The purpose of the NBDE Part I and NBDE Part II examinations is to assist state boards in determining qualifications of dentists who seek licensure to practice dentistry. The examinations assess the ability to understand important information from basic biomedical and dental sciences, and the ability to apply such information in a problem-solving context.

Resources and Programs for Current DMD Students

UF College of Dentistry is committed to the success of its students. The Office of Student Advocacy & Inclusion provides and coordinates a number of resources to provide support to students throughout their time in the program. From free tutoring to peer mentoring and specialized counseling, our students’ well-being is a priority.
