DAT Test Dates

The DAT is offered year-round at any Prometric testing center. In order to register for the DAT, visit the ADA’s website at http://www.ada.org/dat.aspx. After entering your personal information and acquiring a unique ID called a “DentPin”, you will be prompted to pay the fee to take the DAT. The current fee for the DAT is $365 per test. After you have paid, you will receive an eligibility ID code which you can use to register for the DAT on the prometric website. You will be prompted to enter your current hometown, and you will then be able to choose from a list of Prometric testing centers near you. After selecting the Prometric center that you would like to test at, you will be shown a list of dates and times that that center has available to offer testing. If you have a specific date and time in mind, we recommend signing up at least 1 month in advance to ensure that you are able to obtain the spot you are looking for. After you find the DAT test date that you would like to register for, you will be sent a confirmation email from Prometric stating that your reservation for your test has been confirmed. You should also receive an email 1-2 days before your exam reminding you of your appointment. Mark this date on your calendar and don’t be late! You certainly do not want to miss your scheduled test date. However, if you need to cancel your DAT, the following are the fees incurred to reschedule: $100 if done 1 to 5 days before the scheduled test date, $60 if done 6 to 30 days before the scheduled test date, and $25 if done 31+ days before the scheduled testing appointment. As you can see, the fees are quite expensive so be sure to check your calendar to ensure you do not have any conflicting activities before scheduling your DAT!
