By accepting the terms and conditions, you are agreeing to Western Regional Examining Board policies, procedures, and limitation of liability. Detailed policies and procedures can be found on the Application Policies & Procedures page. These policies and procedures include Exam Procedures, Patient Requirements, and the Refund & Cancellation Policy.
Western Regional Examining Board, an Arizona non-profit corporation (“WREB”), is a national dental and dental hygiene testing agency that administers examinations that test candidates’ clinical skills.
No Affiliation with Schools
The WREB examinations are typically administered at various dental schools and universities (individually, a “School” and collectively, the “Schools”) around the country. Other than administering an examination at a School, WREB has no relationship or affiliation with any of the Schools. The relationship between WREB, the School, and you is strictly a contractual one and not an employer/ employee relationship.
Volunteer Patients and Dental Assistants
As part of the examinations, you must perform certain types of clinical procedures on volunteer patients. You are permitted to use your own dental assistants during the examinations, however, you are required to supply both the volunteer patient(s) and a dental assistant, if any, at your own expense.
Limitation of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity
If the administration of the exam is prevented or delayed by any cause or causes beyond the reasonable control of WREB, including, but not limited to: power outage at the Schools; acts of nature; acts of criminals or public enemy; war; riot; official or unofficial acts; inability to secure materials; restrictive governmental orders, regulations or laws; third-party labor disputes or strikes; or any other cause not the fault of WREB (collectively referred to as “Events”), then you acknowledge and agree that WREB will not be responsible or liable for any delay, cost, expense, or inconvenience caused as a result of an Event.
I hereby state that I have read and understand this Disclosure, Limitation of Liability and Indemnity Agreement and agree to its terms. I also acknowledge that I will be notified at the email listed when exam results are posted to my online account.
I certify that the radiographs submitted by me for the operative, endodontic, and periodontal sections of this examination are original, unaltered films. I am aware that submission of altered radiographs, which do not demonstrate the actual condition of the patient, is unethical conduct and will result in failure of the examination for unethical conduct.
Any dispute, controversy or claim (including without limitation tort claims, requests for provisional remedies or other interim relief, and issues as to arbitrability of any matter) arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the breach thereof, that cannot be settled through negotiation shall be settled (a) first, by the parties trying in good faith to settle the dispute by mediation under the Commercial Mediation Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) (such mediation session to be held in Phoenix, Arizona and to commence within 15 days of the appointment of the mediator by the AAA), and (b) if the dispute, controversy or claim cannot be settled by mediation, then by arbitration administered by the AAA under its Commercial Arbitration Rules (such arbitration to be held in Phoenix, Arizona before a single arbitrator and to commence within 15 days of the appointment of the arbitrator by the AAA), and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Before proceeding to Mediation/Arbitration, you agree that you must first exhaust all administrative remedies with WREB, including but not limited to, any appeal rights available.
