has any RDH failed resto boards 3 times??

I failed resto boards 3 times with a score of 72 each time. The last time I did so well and still failed. I practice daily and got passing critique from school staff. Wreb won’t return teeth now give explanation of failure. Anyone question wreb before? I need help in how you pass this board. I think my teeth are so great and everyone agrees and can’t figure out how to pass this. I graduated and can’t work till I pass this thing

Are you in Washington? The restoration board is notoriously tough…don’t give up.
There is a fantastic restorative instructor in Vancouver, WA. that might be willing to give you some tips. I would think it couldn’t hurt to at least try and contact her. 🙂
Karla Sylwester, Clark College DH. She is very friendly and helpful.
Good luck!!

Here is another link regarding this that you find helpful on this site: http://www.dentalhygieneanswers.com/wreb-restorative-exam/
I’ve known many people who have taken the WREB restorative multiple times and failed, which is why I’m hesitant to take it. I’m in Oregon and I live 20 minutes from Washington who requires hygienists to have restorative.

I failed that thing and most of my class failed that as well. It is a lot harder than what the dentists have to go through. I love restorative and thought I was great at it but I scored 72 on it. It is frustrating not being able to see what they critiqued. I heard Clark College has a great restorative program and would recommend checking it out. I know the class fills quickly so keep an eye out for it. Keep your head up you will make it.

I went to Clark College and all but one out of the 20 students in my class passed. One gal even got 100%!!
