Prep Courses for ABO Scenario-based Oral Clinical Exam

The College of Diplomates Prep Course is designed to assist participants in preparing for the American Board of Orthodontics Scenario-based Clinical Examination to achieve board certification.

All in-person Prep Courses for 2020 have been cancelled in response to COVID-19 and safety requirements recommended by the CDC. Thank you for your patience while College leaders re-evaluate future presentation options and course curriculum changes as the ABO moves to a virtual Scenario-based Clinical Examination beginning November 2020.
