About The DAT
Dental school admissions committees use your score and with your academic record to assess whether you have the foundation to build a successful dental career. The test is taken on a computer and has four sections: Survey of Natural Sciences, Perceptual Ability, Reading Comprehension, and Quantitative Reasoning.
Your DAT Score
The DAT is an average of section scores, each on a 1-30 scale. That includes a score for Reading Comprehension, Perceptual Ability, Quantitative Reasoning, and each of the science disciplines on the Survey of Natural Sciences: biology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry.

You will get your test results immediately and you can send your official DAT transcripts to all the dental schools you select at the time of your application.
