Entrance Exam

The DAT (Dental Admission Test) is required by all dental schools.  Competitive scores are usually at least 60th percentile or higher (minimum ~18-20 in each section), but vary by program.

DAT Prep

Some DAT study guides and materials are available to sign out from the HPAC resource collection.  Although we do not offer a formal DAT prep course at Bradley, HPAC advises students to help them develop a personalized strategy, timeline, and study plan to meet their individual needs.  There are many commercially available DAT prep materials and services. We do not endorse any one over the others, but can assist students in choosing products and services that fit their learning style, timeline, and budget. (Hint: The DAT and OAT are essentially the same exam, except the DAT’s Perceptual Ability section replaces the OAT’s Physics section.  So many prep materials are interchangeable.)
