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


The Southern Regional Testing Agency (SRTA) has been a trusted testing agency in the U.S. since 1975. Its innovative approach to examinations, 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.
