DAT Courses and Tutoring

Our Dental Admission Test/Dental Aptitude Test (DAT) courses are geared towards students who are interested in taking either the American or Canadian DAT. Our goal is to help develop the necessary techniques and strategies to master the sections of both tests. The bulk of the course will cover sections common to both the American and Canadian DAT. We include an additional module each for US and Canada to prepare for whichever test is taken. All our sessions are conducted in Toronto and are taught by top instructors who are highly proficient in preparing students for the DAT.

Each of our courses is carefully designed and makes use of all of the best instructional and practice materials available on the market, rather than being limited to proprietary material. Our classes are no larger than eight students, in order to ensure that every student enjoys attention and interaction with the instructor.
