1½ Days of Mock Oral Board Exams

The overall Perio Review Course ends with 1½ days of mock oral board exams. These mock exams simulate as closely as possible the real oral board exams. Each participant appears once before a pair of examiners. When participants are not taking mock oral exams, they are encouraged to visit the various exam rooms to observe others. Individuals who are registered for the 2½ Day Review Course and the 1 ½ Days of Mock Oral Board Exams may choose to attend the Mock Oral Board Exams as observers only. This observation process is an additional key benefit of the overall mock oral board exam process. Periodontists who have passed the oral board exam report that the mock oral board process played a key role in improving their oral test-taking skills and boosting their self-confidence.
