“BoardVitals is a great adjunct to your study materials when preparing for the NBDE II. The questions help to prepare you well for the exam and cover a wide variety of important topics. The ease of completing the practice questions online at your convenience is one of the strengths of the resource. In addition, the detailed answer explanations help to review the important concepts and take away points from the question. I highly recommend it!”

About the NBDE Part 2 Exam

As outlined by the Joint Commission on National Dental Examinations (JCNDE), the purpose of the NBDE Part I and Part II exams is to assess the ability to understand important information from the biomedical and dental sciences, and the ability to apply such information in a problem-solving context. The last date to take the NBDE Part II is July 31, 2022.

What content will be tested on the NBDE Part 2 Exam?

According to the NBDE Part 2 Guide, the following categories are tested:

There are two parts to the NBDE Part 2 Exam: The discipline-based component (400 items), and the case-based component (100 questions).

Discipline-Based Component

  1. Endodontics
  2. Operative Dentistry
  3. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery/Pain Control
  4. Oral Diagnosis
  5. Orthodontics/Pediatric Dentistry
  6. Patient Management
  7. Periodontics
  8. Pharmacology
  9. Prosthodontics

Case-Based Component

This component deals with actual patient cases. They are made up of the following approximate distribution: * adult patients (70%) * child patients (30%)

A minimum of 15% of Case-Based Component exam questions will address the medical management of compromised adults and children. A compromised patient is defined as a person whose health status requires modification of standard treatment.

Each case presentation includes:

  1. synopsis of a patient's health and social histories
  2. patient dental charting
  3. diagnostic radiographs
  4. clinical photographs of the patient (when necessary)

Tips and Advice for the NBDE II Exam:

Of the two component on the exam, the case-based component is a little easier based on student interviews that we conducted. There are several areas that are worth spending some additional time on before heading into the cases: Radiology Images, Prophylactic Regimens, Pathology Pictures, and Medically Compromised Cases (such as diabetes). Commit the eruption sequences to memory. Keep in mind that pain management cases are also fair game.
