Registration now open for the next available Written Examination


The National Dental Assisting Examining Board (NDAEB) continues to monitor the national and international concerns related to COVID-19. Our first priority remains the health and well-being of our candidates, our examiners and our staff.

The NDAEB is actively updating its systems during COVID-19 to ensure that it can offer its written examinations to candidates at the earliest possible date following graduation.

If you previously registered for the March 2020 examination, which was postponed due to COVID-19, the NDAEB will contact you to place you in a special sitting of our written examination at a future date.

If your dental assisting program has been suspended but you are planning to write the NDAEB examination once your program is complete this summer or fall, the NDAEB has opened up on-line registration to allow you to participate in the NEXT AVAILABLE EXAMINATION. The date of this examination will be determined once the majority of Dental Assisting programs across Canada are able to complete the delivery of both theoretical and clinical components of their programs, including practicums. Registering now will ensure that you have a spot in the examination. Because of the delays caused by COVID-19 we anticipate that registration for our next exam will be the largest number of candidates in our history. Therefore please register as soon as possible to ensure yourself a spot.
