Eligibility
The following are the eligibility requirements for the certification examination:
  1. Candidates must have an unrestricted license to practice dentistry in at least one of the states of the United States of America, its Commonwealths or Territories, or have a full-time dental school faculty member exemption. Foreign applicants who do not practice in the United States must have an unrestricted and valid dental license in their country of residence. All dental licenses must be current through the date of the examination. This is required for both the written and the oral examination.
  2. One of the following criteria must be met:
    1. Accumulation of at least 400 documented hours of continuing education credits focused specifically on Orofacial Pain AND have practiced Orofacial Pain full time for at least two years or part time for at least five years;
      OR
    2. Completion of a one or two-year full time residency, preceptorship or fellowship in a university or hospital based Orofacial Pain training program;
      OR
    3. Completion of an online and/or hybrid Orofacial Pain program with at least 400 hours of continuing education credit focused specifically on Orofacial Pain AND have practiced Orofacial Pain full time for at least two years or part time for at least five years.
Completion or participation in a post-graduate program other than a program specifically teaching Orofacial Pain does not qualify (i.e. no other ADA recognized specialty or non-specialty program qualify). Foreign (non-USA) applicants are subject to the same eligibility requirements. Orofacial Pain related lectures in other (non-orofacial pain) graduate programs may be credited towards the continuing education credit requirements. Documentation of the topics and lecture duration has to be submitted to the Board for review of eligibility.
