So you want to practice dentistry in California?
To do that, you’ll need to take and pass the California Dental Law and Ethics Exam.

The exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions. You take the exam at a Prometric testing center near you, and you get your results immediately. To pass the exam you need to review the following:
California Dental Practice Act
Table of Permitted Duties
The California Dental Practice Act is a long read, so I would just read the summary provided by the CDA.
