    The DAT is a multiple-choice standardized exam that is taken at selected testing centers throughout the United States. A student who wants to participate in the test must submit the preliminary application through the American Dental Association (ADA). A student cannot participate more than three times to take the exam. The cost to take the test is $460, all of which is non-refundable. After taking the exam once, a student must wait 90 days before retaking the exam.

    The first section on the exam will be the Survey of the Natural Sciences (90 minutes), which includes questions from Biology, General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry. There are 40 questions about Biology, 30 questions about general chemistry, and 30 for organic chemistry.

    The second section is all about testing perceptual ability (PAT), specifically in the areas of three-dimensional manipulation and spatial reasoning. There are six different problem sets designed to take PAT.

    The third section tests reading comprehension. There are three academic essays for test takers to read, analyze, and answer questions about.  It is designed to test the applicant’s ability to read, analyze, and apply critical thinking in order to answer the related questions.

    The final section is a 45 minutes test of Quantitative Reasoning. It is designed to test basic math skills that include algebra, critical thinking, fractions, roots, and trigonometric identities.

Our approach to private DAT tutoring:

We start off by learning as much about our students as possible. In order to provide you with a personalized DAT prep course, it is important that we understand your history with the DAT exam. Some of the information we seek includes:

  • 1
    How long have you been studying for the DAT, or are you just beginning?
  • 2
    Have you taken the official DAT exam before?
  • 3
    Have you taken a practice DAT test?
  • 4
    What did you score?
  • 5
    Do you need help with every section of the DAT, or do you want your DAT prep course to focus on certain sections/problem types?
  • 6
    Are you struggling with content?
  • 7
    Are you struggling with strategy and time management?
  • 8
    Where are you located, and what are your best days/times to meet with a tutor?
  • 9
    Do you prefer online or in-person meeting? (Note: you can use both options interchangeably)
  • 10
    What is your deadline, and have you registered for an upcoming test date?

After we understand our students and their background studying for the DAT, we then match the students with a private DAT tutor who meets their expectations, location preference, and schedule. The first step is to determine where are your weakness(es) between the four sections of the DAT. We match the student with a top scoring DAT tutor based on the student’s learning style/personality.

Along with individual DAT tutoring, we also provide DAT tutoring in small groups. In small group tutoring, the tutor provides a general course study plan, while allocating time to address individual questions or concerns. It is our mission to help you build the confidence and knowledge necessary to crush the DAT.

We include an official ADA ® full-length DAT practice test for students. Students can use this as a diagnostic from which our DAT tutors can analyze the results and identify where you need to focus your studies and what you need to improve exactly to get the best result.

In addition to providing the best DAT private tutoring, we also offer application help and personal statement revision. We understand that the dental college application process is a rigorous one. Our professional application staff can help you ensure that you have a strong preliminary application through the American Dental Association (ADA). We are here to help you get into your top dental program!
