Exam Preparation

Comprehensive Treatment Planning Exam (CTP)

The Comprehensive Treatment Planning (CTP) examination is a computer-based examination administered by Prometric testing centers. The exam consists of three (3) patient cases of varying complexity, one of which is a pediatric patient. For each case, Candidates assess patient history, photographs, radiographs, and clinical information, create and submit a treatment plan, and then answer questions or perform tasks related to each case. Candidates are allowed three (3) hours to complete the CTP exam. A 15 minute tutorial is provided prior to the beginning of the examination.

Once enrolled in an exam, you will receive information regarding scheduling the CTP exam. This exam will be taken at a Prometric testing center. You will have approximately a 45-60 day time frame to take the exam.

For more information refer to the Application Policies & Procedures.

Prometric information for CTP exam

You will need to schedule an appointment at a Prometric test center to take the CTP exam. Once you are enrolled in a Dental exam, you will be emailed a letter with the information needed to schedule your CTP exam with Prometric. You cannot schedule without this authorization.

Appointments are limited and WREB recommends scheduling your appointment with Prometric as soon as you receive the email with your authorization. This will increase your chances of arranging the most convenient time for your schedule.
