Complete Manikin Based Exam
"SRTA’s model teeth allow for proper assessment of restorations, crowns and bridges to be performed as if it were on a live patient.” - Dr. Charles Holt, DDS
States Resources for Testing and Assessments (SRTA)
States Resources for Testing and Assessments (SRTA) has been a trusted testing agency in the U.S. since 1975. Its innovative approach to dental licensure examinations, dental hygiene exams, dental candidate exams along with the vast network of examiners from across the country, affords it the opportunity to be the most responsive testing agency to meet the present challenges facing the dental industry.
SRTA offers its complete and comprehensive non-patient-based examination, eliminating the need for candidates to find and vet live patients. Our manikins accurately mimic real teeth and give the “perfect” patient for testing purposes.
SRTA continues to offer its traditional live-patient based exam as well. This exam continues to thoroughly assess dental and hygiene candidates' hands-on clinical skills.
SRTA exams are accepted in more than 75 percent of the U.S.

The Future of Licensure Examinations
SRTA and Promethean Dental Systems aim to evolve the future of dental licensure and clinical examinations. A multimodal examination combines the Manikin, the use of Digital Dentistry, and the Simodont Dental Trainer. The Simodont Dental Trainer simulates the patient with incredible dental fidelity and automatically grades the examination as you complete the procedure. The Simodont Dental Trainer is used for all subtractive procedures. Combining the Simodont Dental Trainer with the Manikin to perform all additive procedures, provides multiple modes of testing a candidate's performance. All Manikin procedures are graded using intraoral scanners and machine grading software, ensuring objective and fair grading.
SRTA is a candidate-focused, innovative testing agency committed to bringing the most modern and innovative thoughts and practices to dental and hygiene licensing.
Focusing on a positive, collaborative environment, SRTA welcomes evidence-based research to ensure that our candidates are well-prepared for the evolving practice of dentistry.
