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.

We apologize that in-person courses in 2020 were cancelled in response to COVID-19. College leaders are continuing to evaluate virtual presentation options pending curriculum changes needed as the ABO moves to a virtual Scenario-based Clinical Examination beginning November 2020. 

Currently the next Prep Course offered in-person (according to local, state and federal guidelines related to COVID-19) will be during the American Association of Orthodontists 2021 Annual Session:

Sunday April 25, 2021 at the AAO Annual Session in Boston 
Two separate half-day courses will be offered as space is available:
Morning Course Option: 8:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Afternoon Course Option:  1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Boston Convention & Exposition Center - Room 104
