For purposes of preparing for, responding to, and mitigating any effect of COVID-19, State Surgeon General Scott A. Rivkees issued Emergency Order 20-012 to extend the provisions of Emergency Order 20-008 suspending the provisions of sections 466.006 and 466.007, Florida Statutes, that would prohibit the use of mannequins or simulated patients in lieu of live patients during the administration of the American Dental Licensing Examination and Dental Hygiene Examination.

They are also working with Florida schools to ensure that testing sites will be available and prepared to accommodate candidates for the exam.
