Congratulations to all for being selected by the ABO to display their cases at the AAO meeting. The ABO applauds the residents attending programs within the PCSO constituent who have registered for the ABO Written Examination being held April 8-11 at the Pearson Vue Testing Centers. The ABO urges orthodontic residents to complete the board-certification process by taking the Initial Certification Examination (ICE). Orthodontic residents are encouraged to register for the ICE soon after passing the ABO Written Examination, as Clinical Examination sessions fill quickly. Orthodontic residents must register for the Written Examination before they may register for the ICE. Registration is open for the August 2014 Clinical Examination. Space is limited, and exam sessions may close prior to the registration deadline. The ABO would like to remind future candidates that we accept universal digital formats for pretreatment and interim models that are constructed according to ABO standards and specifications. These files must pass the ABO Utility in order to be used for the Clinical Examination. Please review the ABO Digital Model Requirements on the ABO website before submitting digital models. Be sure to test your digital models as soon as possible to make sure they pass the ABO Utility; if they do not pass the ABO Utility, please contact your vendor. All vendors received the ABO specifications in January 2013. The ABO is hosting a conference for department chairs and program directors (or any two faculty members from each ADA-Accredited Graduate Orthodontic Program in the United States and Canada), along with ABO-appointed advocates, to attend the Vincent G. Kokich - American Board of Orthodontics Educators' Symposium on March 29, 2014 in St. Louis. Topics to be covered will include the Written and Clinical Examinations, ABO certification and recertification, ethical issues related to the ABO examinations, the value of Diplomate status, and promoting certification throughout the world.
