Dental Aptitude Test (DAT)
The Dental Aptitude Test (DAT) Program is conducted by the Canadian Dental Association (CDA) to help students assess their aptitude for a career in dentistry and to assist dental schools in selecting first-year students.
The English DAT consists of two components:
1) a written component that includes a Survey of Natural Sciences Test, a Perceptual Ability Test, and a Reading Comprehension Test and
2) a manual dexterity component known as the Manual Dexterity Test (MDT).
There is no Reading Comprehension Test on the French DAT.
