Dental Aptitude Test (DAT)
Dental Schools in Canada do not have a standard approach in how they view DAT scores while evaluating an applicant. Some schools take into account ALL the components of DAT, while others look at Academic Average (AA) which is a sum of Survey of Natural Sciences (SNS) and Reading Comprehension Test (RCT). Majority of the Dental Schools in Canada do not consider Manual Dexterity Test (MDT).
There are some Dental Schools that will accept US DAT as well. The US DAT is offered in English only and consists of four sections: Survey of the Natural Sciences, Perceptual Ability, Reading Comprehension, and Quantitative Reasoning.
