QE Prep Study Guide

Open to download resource. The sample test provided as part of this review course is intended to give candidates a sense of the format and types of questions to expect on the ABPD Qualifying Examination. They are based on the 8 domains identified by the board as the basis for a well-rounded knowledge of pediatric dentistry. Unlike the oral clinical exam that focuses on the clinical practice of pediatric dentistry, the QE exam focuses on the scientific and biological principles that support the practice of pediatric dentistry. Some of the sample questions come directly from the presentations given at the QE Review Course while others were developed from reference sources such as the AAPD Reference Manual, the AAPD Handbook of Pediatric Dentistry, Pediatric Dentistry textbooks and published peer-reviewed literature. The answers to the questions are intentionally not provided so that if candidates are unsure of the answer, they will be motivated to study that particular topic in more depth.
