Congratulations to the Class of 2023, the first School of Dental Medicine class that has prepared for and taken the INBDE, as they have all achieved a 100% first time pass rate—zero failures.
This is the first time in recent (50-year) history that the school has had a 100% pass rate on a National Board Dental Examination.
Passing the INBDE is not only a graduation requirement, it is required by all 50 states in order for a dental school graduate to be granted a dental license to practice.
Achieving a 100% first time pass rate on the INBDE is an indicator of our school's excellent and highly effective curriculum and teaching, the academic strengths and efforts of our dental students and the academic quality of applicants who are choosing to come to our school.
Congratulations to the Class of 2023 and the School of Dental Medicine!
