You must contact ADA to have your official Advanced Dental Admission Test (ADAT) scores sent to ADEA CAAPID. Once you do, ADA electronically sends your scores directly to ADEA CAAPID. Paper copies are not accepted. 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 ADAT 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 ADAT scores are attached to your application, they cannot be removed should you decide you no longer want your programs to view them. Your ADAT scores will also remain attached to your application if you re-apply. We recommend researching your programs to determine whether you want your ADAT scores to be part of your application before you request them.
