January COVID-19 Pandemic Update

January 14, 2021
The National Dental Assisting Examining Board (NDAEB) continues to monitor the national and
international concerns related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Our first priority remains the health and
well-being of our candidates, our examiners/evaluators and our volunteers and staff. We also care about
partners and stakeholders and our ongoing cooperation.

Developments have been quickly changing over the last few weeks. Please read the January COVID-19 Pandemic Update for a brief update relating to the NDAEB, the Written Exam, Clinical Practice Evaluations (CPE) and International Candidates.

International Application Process

Notice of Fee Increase

August 26, 2020

Due to drastically escalating costs of safety and exam delivery protocols caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic, the NDAEB has made the difficult but necessary decision to increase fees for examination and evaluation services.

In order to minimize the impact on candidates currently enrolled in DA programs whose graduation is in 2020 has been delayed, the fee increases will take place in two stages. The first will take effect October 1, 2020 and  the second will be implemented January 1, 2021. Please see the fee schedule.
