Statement of Non Affiliation

ITD Training Centre – Statement of Non Affiliation:

The National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB) is the organization responsible for establishing and maintaining a national standard of competence of dentists in Canada.

In Canada, accreditation is determined by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC). A dental program that is not recognized by the CDAC is considered to be non-accredited. The NDEB defines a non-accredited dental program as a dental degree program from a university that is authorized by the government of the country it is located in to award degrees.

NDEB develops and administers a series of innovative, internationally-recognized examinations and assessments that are valid and reliable. Each year, approximately 1000 dentists from Canada and around the world are certified through the NDEB’s examination and assessment processes.

Individuals who hold a DDS/DMD/BDS from a non-accredited program must follow one of two pathways. Option 1 of the NDEB Equivalency Process includes three examinations. Successful completion of the examinations allows individuals to move on to the next step of the the NDEB Certification Process.

Passing the NDEB’s  NDECC® (National Dental Examination of Clinical Competence) is the third step of the Equivalency Process. The purpose of new, trademarked, Modified Skills Examination is to assess the clinical competence of dentists trained in non-accredited programs.

ITD Dentistry and the ITD Training Centre are NOT associated with the National Dental Examining Board of Canada (NDEB) or the NDEB’s NDECC®.
