American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) Yearly
Update
Clinical Examination Update:
The ABO conducted clinical examinations in
February and September 2018 and February
2019. A total of 449 orthodontists were certified/
recertified at these examinations. A complete
listing by examination and constituency can
be found on the ABO website (https://www.
americanboardortho.com).
The first scenario-based oral clinical examination
was successfully administered in February 2019
with a 68% pass rate. Traditional clinical examinations were also offered by petition only in
February and June 2019, the final time case-based
examinations were used.
Response to the new examination has been
overwhelmingly positive. Examinees shared that
they were pleased with how well organized and
professionally handled the examination details
were administered. Feedback received included
these statements:
"Overall, I appreciate the ABO's commitment to strive for excellence and
improvement and would recommend
any orthodontist take the new exam. I
truly feel I have become a better orthodontist because of it."
"You walk out of the exam feeling
humbled and grateful for the time
you guys spent investing in us and our
profession."
"Overall, the experience was humbling, inspiring and educational!"
The next scenario-based oral clinical examination
is scheduled for November 2019. The registration
is full with a wait list.
Registration for the 2020 examinations opened
on May 22, 2019. An additional examination has

been added because of anticipated demand. Examinations will now be offered in February, July,
and November 2020.
Study materials and online resources are available to assist in preparing for the scenario-based
oral clinical examination, including a study guide
and sample cases (with questions and answers).
Orthodontic programs interested in hosting casebased mock board examinations are welcome to
contact ABO examiners to request a school visit.
ABO advocates are available to visit orthodontic
programs if requested. Prep courses to assist in
preparing for the examination will be offered at
various times throughout the year in collaboration with The College (CDABO).
Once board certification is achieved, certification
renewal is required every 10 years to remain
active and may be taken no earlier than two years
prior to the certificate expiration date. There are
two options to recertify (travel to St. Louis is not
required).
1.	 Complete two online board case exams as
provided by the board and submit continuing
education (CE) credits from online American
Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial
Orthopedics (AJO-DO) examinations.
2.	 Submit one case treated by the examinee (see
website for criteria) and submit CE credits
from online AJO-DO examinations.
Visit the ABO website (https://www.
americanboardortho.com) for additional details
on any of the above.
Written Examination Update:
The 2019 ABO written examination was administered one day only on April 10, 2019, to 422 examinees at Pearson Vue Testing Centers throughout
the United States and Canada. The reliability of
the examination was 90%, with a 96% pass rate.
The next written examination will be offered on
April 7, 2020. Eligible individuals may register for
this examination beginning this fall. As a remind-
