The Class of 2013 has scored a first-attempt pass rate of 99.4 percent on Part I of the National Board Dental Examinations. This is four points higher than the national average. In every category of the exams, our students scored between 4.5 and 8 percent higher than the national average. Considering that the Class of 2012 scored a first-attempt pass rate of 100 percent on Part I of the National Boards last year and that the Class of 2011 scored a 98.6 percent first-attempt pass rate on Part II of the National Boards, it becomes clear that NYU dental students are raising the bar on performance standards nationally.

On behalf of everyone at NYUCD, Global Health Nexus offers hearty congratulations to our wonderful students and to the outstanding faculty members who guided them to success. Students and faculty celebrated their achievement at a party in their honor hosted by Dean Bertolami.
