The Academy of Veterinary Dental Technician (AVDT) exam is provided once a year. The exam takes place after the AVDT candidate has successfully had their credential packet pass. The exam is a 2-phase exam that will test the candidate’s knowledge on all areas of veterinary dentistry that have been demonstrated during their 2-year credential process. Phase one is a remote written exam of 150-200 multiple choice questions. Once phase one has been successfully completed, the candidate will move on to phase two; the practical portion which is a hands on section demonstrating skills that a veterinary technician in dentistry should be able to perform.
