About the JCNDE
The JCNDE is the agency responsible for the development and administration of the National Board Dental Examinations. This 15-member Commission includes representatives from dental schools, dental practice, state dental examining boards, dental hygiene, dental students, and the public.
The Integrated National Board Dental Examination (INBDE) is a new examination being developed by the Committee for an Integrated Examination (CIE), a special committee of the JCNDE. The CIE is charged with the development of the INBDE, which will eventually replace the current NBDE Part I and Part II. This is expected to be a long term project. At least four years notice will be provided before implementation.
