WREB Training

Our WREB Training is conducted for 4 days and 6 days. This course is ONLY for candidates who have enrolled for the WREB exam.

The Western Regional Examining Board (WREB) WREB is one of five examination agencies for dentists and dental hygienists in the United States. The 2020 WREB Dental exam consists of the following required sections: Operative, Endodontics, and Comprehensive Treatment Planning (CTP). The Periodontal section remains part of the exam and is included in the full exam fee but is not a required part of the exam. An optional Prosthodontic section is also offered, if the state to which a Candidate is applying for initial licensure requires it.

The Operative Section is a WREB required section that is performed on a live patient, subject to acceptance criteria. The Candidate may complete up to two procedures to demonstrate competence on the Operative Section.

A Class II must be completed to pass the WREB exam:
• Direct Posterior Class II Composite Restoration (MO, DO or MOD)
A second procedure, if required, may be any of the following:
• Direct Posterior Class II Composite Restoration (MO, DO or MOD)
• Direct Posterior Class II Amalgam Restoration (MO, DO or MOD)
• A Direct Anterior Class III Composite Restoration (ML, DL, MF, DF)

Endodontics is a required section and will be completed on simulated teeth. Universal precautions and a rubber dam are required for all Endodontic treatment. Required Endodontic procedures:
• Anterior–Graded on Access and Condensation
• Posterior– Graded on Access only

The Prosthodontics section is an optional section. Candidates can choose to opt into the Prosthodontic Section during registration if the state to which they are applying for initial licensure requires this procedure.

The Prosthodontic Section consists of simulated preparation of two abutments (#3 FGC and #5 PFM) to support a posterior three-unit fixed partial denture prosthesis and preparation of an anterior tooth (#8/9) for a full-coverage ceramic crown.
