About the Exam

The Dental Licensure Objective Structured Clinical Examination (DLOSCE) is a high-stakes licensure examination which requires candidates to use their clinical skills to successfully complete one or more dental problem solving tasks. It is designed to provide information to US dental boards concerning whether a candidate for dental licensure possesses the necessary level of clinical skills to safely practice entry-level dentistry.
