The UF College of Dentistry’s pediatric residents are shining again. Congratulations to the college’s 10 pediatric residents in the Class of 2019 who turned in a perfect 100 percent pass rate on the Qualifying Examination, or QE, of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, or ABPD, to wrap up their residencies at UFCD this summer.
The QE is one examination of the two-part certification process for Diplomate status in the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. The examination is designed to generate evidence toward validation of the individual’s advanced training in pediatric dentistry. The QE must be successfully completed prior to registering for the Oral Clinical Examination.
“We are all very proud of our residents and wish them continued success in their careers,” Abi Adewumi, B.D.S., FDSRCS, clinical associate professor, residency program director and director of hospital dentistry in the UFCD Department of Pediatric Dentistry said. “I am also very grateful to our incredible faculty members for their dedication and commitment to the education of our residents.”
Five completed their residencies in Naples at UFCD’s NCEF Pediatric Dental Center on the Florida SouthWestern State College campus serving children in Collier County and surrounding areas, and five residents completed their certificates at the college’s home base in Gainesville in the Dr. Robert E. Primosch Clinical Education Center in pediatric dentistry.
