Qualifying Examination

The Qualifying Examination (QE) is administered by the College of Denturists (CDO). All eligible candidates must successfully complete both parts of the CDO’s entry-to-practice QE before they can become a registered Denturist in Ontario. 

The QE consists of two components:

  • Part I: a written exam consisting of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ)
  • Part II: an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE)

The QE is based upon internationally recognized testing standards and procedures.  The examination is designed to ensure that each candidate is afforded an optimal, standardized assessment and that the examination is valid, objective and defensible.
