Monday and Tuesday
The 5-Day Course ends with two days of mock oral board exams. These mock exams simulate as closely as possible the real oral board exams. On Monday, each participant appears once before a pair of examiners. On Tuesday, each participant appears once before a different set of examiners. When participants are not taking mock oral exams, they are encouraged to visit the various exam rooms to observe others. This observation process is a 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.



This course is not approved, recommended, or endorsed by the American Board of Periodontology and thus should not be construed as an official guide in the preparation for any certifying board examination. The statements, ideas, and opinions expressed in this course are those of the individual participants and in no way should reflect the statements, ideas, and opinions of any specialty certifying organization.
