Awesome product


I bought the dental boards mastery app way back in June-ish 2016. I took my boards july 2017 and passed on my first attempt. This app is amazing, the actual exam is very similar. The app is intuitive and makes studing more fun. I preferred these over the "dental decks" which I thought was just way too much material. They (used to?) have a money back guarantee if you can show them that you did not pass..... I am not sure if that is still available but for me that was what sold me, however now that I am going into the 2nd boards exam I think I will go straight for this app again.

Awesome customer service


I never rate apps, but they did such a good job I had to give them 5 stars. I purchased the full price premium version. And two weeks later my class presented me with a bulk purchase that would give everyone 30% off. Emailed them and even after having the app for two weeks they are sending me a refund.

Decent study aid


I like it for the most part. There are some very weirdly worded questions sometimes, which maybe the real boards will have that.
The biggest complaint is the pictures associated with the answers, they usually don’t show specifically what the answer is talking about, and they are often very pixelated like they were jus pulled from google thumbnails. For the price of this app, I would expect much better pictures.
