The Ultimate CDCA ADEX Test Prep.
100% Free with Signup.

At Benco Dental, we want to assist next-generation dentists prepare for one of your most daunting educational hurdles. Our comprehensive study guide is part of a special educational partnership with esteemed professor and lecturer, Dr. Howard Strassler, DMD, FAGD. Best of all, there’s no charge to sign up for Benco Select Student.


Unlike ordinary study guides, ours shows more than what to do—it also shows you what not to do. Now you can see photos of exactly what will earn you a failing grade, as well as what constitutes passing and above passing scores. It’s the result of decades of meticulous teaching documentation by one of America’s foremost and most recognized dental educators, Dr. Howard Strassler, DMD, FAGD.


Because your tutor is among the test’s architects, he’s uniquely qualified to guide you through modules that are kept current through annual review and updating. You get maximum results, with minimum time commitment, because you’re only studying the most relevant, up-to-date test prep materials, and not wasting time on material you don’t need to.

Detailed Yet Succinct Modules
Covering All Bases

There’s more to getting prepared than studying for the test itself. That’s why our modules cover everything, including subjects you might not expect: test registration, stress management, planning for the actual test day, developing your restorative plan, and top reasons why test-takers are unsuccessful and how to avoid common pitfalls. Of course, all of the intensive clinical areas are comprehensively addressed as well.

Fits Your Schedule.

Each of the modules are presented in a format that allows you to view and read as much or as little as you have time for. Our learning management software is compatible across devices so you can breeze through all or just part of a module on your phone at the laundromat, on your tablet between classes, or on your laptop at home where you can view the course photos on a larger screen.
