(Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge)

What is Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge?

The AFK exam is the first phase that a foreign-trained dentist needs to complete in order to become a licensed dentist in Canada. This multiple-choice exam tests students’ knowledge of biomedical science as well as applied clinical science. The assessment consists of two books with each book containing 150 single-answer multiple choice questions.

Coverage of the exam is based on the competencies for a beginning Dental Practitioner in Canada. Questions are distributed among 8 major content areas and each area carries a different percentage of questions.

Over the many years of our practice, we have gained a thorough knowledge and understanding of NDEB requirements that have helped us design the right methods so you can pass the AFK exam with a high score.

Here’s what students can expect from ConfiDentist’s AFK course:

  • A simplified approach that breaks down complex topics into smaller, easily-digestible programs
  • Detailed focus on each subtopic to solidify students’ understanding of the exam and of dental practices in Canada
  • Mock exams that will challenge you and prepare you for what you will see on the actual exam
  • An updated curriculum to match the changing trends in the exams and in the Canadian dental space
