2Another perfect pass rate for the University of Florida College of Dentistry D.M.D. Class of 2014! The DMD Class of 2014 followed up their 100 percent pass rate on Part I of the National Dental Board Exam by achieving another 100 percent pass rate on Part II of the exams.

“We were thrilled when we learned the news and we couldn’t be more proud of the students’ performance on the exam,” said Venita Sposetti, D.M.D., associate dean for Education, said.

The test is administered by the Joint Commission on National Dental Exams, which is part of the American Dental Association (ADA). National summary reports from the ADA will be available in about six months. The reports will show how the class test results compare to the national average.

“Our DMD classes have earned a 100 percent pass on Part I of the national exams for five years running but no one is sure how long it’s been since a class achieved a 100 percent pass rate Part II. However this has certainly raised the bar for the Class of 2015,” Sposetti said.

The purpose of the NBDE Part I and NBDE Part II examinations is to assist state boards in determining qualifications of dentists who seek licensure to practice dentistry. The examinations assess the ability to understand important information from basic biomedical and dental sciences, and the ability to apply such information in a problem-solving context.
