In addition to the Dental Admission Test guides and software that we recommend to you, please consider visiting the official website for the Dental Admissions Test: click on DAT in the US or click here: DAT for students in Canada. Note: only the Canadian DAT includes manual dexterity/soap carving which is only covered in programs that specifically say so like the Canadian Edition of TopScore Pro.
