I am delighted to share with you the news that the Class of 2017 has achieved a 100 percent first-attempt pass rate on Part I of the National Board Dental Examinations. This is a tremendous personal achievement for every individual in the class and is significantly above the national average. Clearly, NYU dental students are raising the bar on performance standards nationally.
The engine that drives such success is fueled by our outstanding faculty, who role model best clinical practices, are available for individual tutorials, and have the best interests of our students foremost in their minds. This, together with the discipline and commitment of our students, makes an unbeatable combination.
I offer hearty congratulations to our extraordinary students and faculty on their exceptional achievement.
