Since 2009, the JCNDE has worked to develop an examination program that integrates content from the biomedical, behavioral, and clinical sciences, to replace National Board Dental Examination (NBDE) Parts I and II. The purpose of the Integrated National Board Dental Examination (INBDE) mirrors that of the NBDE Program: to assist dental boards in determining the qualifications of individuals who seek licensure to practice dentistry.

The Joint Commission will continue to provide news about this transition as information becomes available.
