Who is the DAT?

The Dental Admission Test (DAT) is a multiple-choice standardized exam taken by potential dental school students in the United States and Canada. The American Dental Association (ADA) conducts the DAT.

The DAT is typically administered year-round at test centers operated by Prometric Inc. throughout the United States, its territories (including Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands), and Canada.

Step 1: Eligibility and Application

To be eligible for the DAT, a candidate must be planning to apply to a dental education program. You can apply online for the DAT through the ADA’s website. During the application process, you will be asked to read the DAT Guide, fill out an application, and submit a fee.

Step 2: Scheduling the Exam

Once your application is approved, you will receive an email notification with instructions to schedule your test appointment. You can then schedule your DAT exam at a Prometric Test Center of your choice.
