You must contact ADA to have your official Dental Admission Test (DAT) scores sent to ADEA AADSAS. Once you do, ADA electronically sends your scores directly to ADEA AADSAS. Paper copies are not accepted. If you requested that your DAT scores be sent to a dental school, the scores will also automatically be sent to ADEA AADSAS. If you did not request that your scores be sent to a dental school when you first submitted your DAT application, you can make an additional request at www.ada.org/dat.
After you contact ADA, make sure you also self-report your DAT score in the Standardized Tests section of the application and include your DENTPIN. It takes approximately 10-12 business days from the date you make the request to post to your application.
Make sure that the name, date of birth, and DENTPIN on your application match that on your DAT exam; otherwise, your scores will not automatically post to your account. If you believe there may be a discrepancy, wait until ADA processes your scores, then contact customer service so they can manually connect the scores to your application.
Once your DAT scores are attached to your application, they cannot be removed should you decide you no longer want your programs to view them. Your DAT scores will also remain attached to your application if you re-apply. We recommend researching your programs to determine whether you want your DAT scores to be part of your application before you request them.
