Associate Fellow Requirements
The Examination Process:
The Associate Fellow examination has two parts. For those seriously considering applying for Associate Fellowship, download the Associate Fellow Guidebook.
Part 1 of the Associate Fellow exam is designed to assess your knowledge of basic science, “entry-level” knowledge and understanding of implant dentistry principles, and the ability to apply these principles in a clinical situation.
Candidates have four hours to complete 150 multiple-choice questions, administered via remote proctored exam. You will need to have access to a computer, high-speed Wi-Fi connection, and a cellular device for the examination.
You must pass Part 1 before continuing to Part 2. If you opt not to take Part 1 and Part 2 together, you have four years after passing Part 1 to complete Part 2.
Part 2 is an oral examination in front of AAID-credentialed reviewers and is clinically oriented. For the oral examination, candidates review a written description, a panograph, and a photograph for six (6) standardized cases, and then respond to questions related to treatment.
