Note: This also applies to repeat exams!
After receipt of the fee, the applicant will be informed of the next possible exam date.
Note: The time is to be observed precisely, because a late or NO appearance is considered as failed attempt in the exam.
The place of examination will be the Dental Association of the respective state.
The technical language test is designed to be as practical as possible. All elements can be found in everyday dental practice. The examination only refers to the technical language and not to the basic knowledge of dentistry.
The 60-minute exam is divided into 3 stations of 20 minutes each:
- Dentist-patient interview
- Dentist-dentist conversation
Dentist-Patient interview (ward 1)
The examinee conducts a medical history interview with a fictitious patient as part of a simulated dentist-patient discussion.
The history taking is done exactly as it was learned in the course of the study and in the form of questioning the patient about his symptoms.
After the examinee has made an impression of the patient, he explains his suspected diagnosis and makes suggestions for further treatment and therapy to the patient.
Note: There is no clinical examination.
Documentation (ward 2)
The examinee is to transfer the patient's self-collected medical history into, for example, a medical report / doctor's letter, etc. The report of findings / letter to the doctor should contain the aspects and knowledge gained in ward 1.
Dentist-dentist discussion (ward 3)
The examinee sits with two or three dentists and presents the patients seen in ward 1. The written report / doctor's letter from ward 2 will be given to the examiners.
It must be communicated in the dental language. The examinee should also explain his own assessment and ideas for further treatment.
Tools during the exam
Each candidate is given an empty notepad and a pen. Other aids (such as specialist literature, mobile phones and smart phones) are not permitted. Also, no handbags, jackets, coats or the like may be taken into the examination rooms.
Note: During the test, telephoning and any contact with uninvolved persons are considered an attempt to deceive and lead to the test not being passed.
