(Assessment of Clinical Judgement)

What is the Assessment of Clinical Judgment?

The ACJ is admittedly the most difficult exam of the NDEB’s Equivalency Process for foreign-trained dentists who are graduates of non-accredited dental programs. This written exam consists of 3 exam book (120-150 questions each; the mix of single-answer and multiple-answer multiple-choice questions and computer-based format). It tests students on how dentists must respond in real-life situations. It addresses several components including case-based diagnosis, clinical decision-making, treatment-planning as well as radiographic imaging interpretation.

The NDEB’s ACJ exam requires proper preparation and thorough knowledge of the right concepts, tools, and techniques to succeed. At ConfiDentist, we use a rigorous, time-tested Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach to provide students with the appropriate skills and strategies to raise their chances of ACJ exam success.

The course includes video demonstrations and live instructor demonstrations to help you feel comfortable with the exam material and prepare thoroughly for the real thing.

Mock exams, mock trials, practice questions, and one-on-one discussions with the instructors will help you become comfortable and confident in answering any kind of question on the actual exam.

We put in a lot of effort to ensure that our course materials and curriculum are always up-to-date and aligned with any changes in the ACJ exam.
