Registration for all 2017 Exams will open September 1, 2016. Please see the Exam Schedule for a complete list of all currently scheduled exams. CITA may add exams as the year progresses, so keep checking back for more opportunities!
Based on the hosting facility, candidates will be tested using either the Acadental ModuPro typodont or a typodont manufactured especially for CITA by Kilgore International.
Please confirm which typodont will be used at the chosen location from the Facility Information Sheet available under the Documents tab of BrightTrac prior to ordering a practice model.
To order practice typodonts or additional teeth, please select from the following:
**Note: Endodontic teeth (#8 and #14) are the same for both typodonts. These are manufactured and must be purchased directly from Acadental.**
CITA allows D3 students to participate in the manikin parts of the ADEX dental exam. Educators and students have favored the administration of the manikin examination during the junior year of study due to the fact that the manikin examination is closer to the students' pre-clinical laboratory experience in working with typodont simulation. The Curriculum Integrated Format (CIF) is the pre-graduation format of the ADEX Dental Examination Series for D3 (junior) and D4 (final year) dental students of record. Both the Curriculum Integrated Format and the Traditional Format examinations are identical in content, criteria, and scoring. The major difference between the two formats is in the sequencing of examination sections. In the Curriculum Integrated Format, examination parts are administered over the course of an eligible dental student's D3 and D4 (or final) years. Beginning July 1 of a candidate's D4 (or final) year, candidates have 18 months within which they must successfully complete all parts of the dental licensure exam. Therefore, D3 candidates can take the manikin portions of the exam before their 18-month time line begins.
In the Traditional Format, the manikin-based and patient-based examination sections are administered in their entirety at each site over the course of two consecutive days. D4 (final year), Resident/Graduate dental students, Internationally trained dental students, and those candidates who have already graduated dental school may sit for all parts of the dental examination. Candidates participating in the Traditional Format have 18 months from the time they first attempt any of the 6 parts of the ADEX Dental Licensure Exam within which they must successfully complete all parts of the ADEX Dental Licensure Exam in order to be eligible for licensure.
