Are you planning to apply to a dental school in Australia  for the 2015 intake? Two of OzTREKK’s Australian Dental Schools require the Dental Aptitude Test (DAT)—Melbourne Dental School and Sydney Dental School.

As there are a limited number of DAT test centres and seats available, it is recommended that applicants register as early as possible for their preferred test location and date for the DAT and well in advance of the registration deadline. Seats fill up very quickly at certain test centres and Canadian Dental Association cannot guarantee that seats will still be available at the end of the registration period.

Upcoming DAT dates:
  • Saturday, February 22, 2014 (Must register before January 15, 2014 23:59:59 EST)
  • Saturday, November 1, 2014
 Please note that payment is required at the time of registration.

Canadian Dental Admission Test Format

There are four examinations included in the English DAT and three examinations included in the French DAT. The tests are administered over a half day and include the following:

1. Manual Dexterity Test – 30 minutes
2. Survey of Natural Sciences – 60 minutes
3. Perceptual Ability – 60 minutes
4. Reading Comprehension (English DAT only) – 50 minutes

OzTREKK represents four Australian Dental Schools:
  • James Cook University Dental School
