The Dental Admission Test (DAT) is an important exam that prospective dental students must take as part of their application process. After taking the DAT, you'll want to make sure that your scores have been sent to the dental schools you're interested in applying to. However, it's not always clear how to check which dental schools your scores have been sent to. In this article, we'll walk you through the process of checking which schools you sent your DAT score report to, to see which dental schools have received your DAT score report. Whether you're a first-time test taker or you've taken the DAT before, this guide will help you ensure that your scores have been sent to the right schools.
Here's how to check which schools you sent your DAT exam to (for those who already signed up for the DAT):
1. Log in to your American Dental Association (ADA) account here: https://dts.ada.org/login/login__ADA.aspx
2. Click the “Applications” tab. You can find this tab below your DENTPIN and NAME, in the chart that shows your “Score Results,” “Requests,” and “Applications.”
3. Click the “Display” button in the “Details” column of the chart.
4. All the schools that you sent your DAT score to, will show here.
Once your DAT scores have been sent to the dental schools you've selected, it can take some time for the schools to receive and process your scores. The amount of time it takes for schools to receive your scores can vary, but typically ranges from a few days to a few weeks. It's important to keep in mind that during peak application periods, such as the summer and fall, dental schools may experience a higher volume of score reports to process, which can cause delays. Additionally, if you've taken the DAT multiple times, it's possible that schools may wait to receive all of your scores before considering your application.
In conclusion, keeping track of where your DAT scores have been sent is an important part of the dental school application process. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily check which schools your DAT scores have been sent to and ensure that your application is complete. Remember to stay organized and keep track of your score report, and don't hesitate to contact the American Dental Association (ADA) if you have any questions or concerns about your scores. By taking these steps, you'll be well on your way to achieving your dream of attending dental school. Good luck!
