What is Advanced Dental Admission Test (ADAT)?
The ADAT is an admission test designed to provide advanced dental education programs with a means to assess an applicant’s potential for success in these programs. The ADAT is used by advanced dental education programs in conjunction with other admission tools that provide insight into candidate qualifications as they relate to core program requirements. It is highly recommended that all the applicants for advanced standing dental programs in the United States take this exam along with INBDE because many dental school programs in the United States will consider the ADAT exam as a part of their evaluations. Starting from 2022, the University of Toronto and McGill university dental schools have discontinued the AFK exam as a part of their requirements and have replaced it with the ADAT exam. Therefore, all the candidates who want to apply to these universities have to take the ADAT exam as a part of their process. It is also highly recommended for the applicants to dental schools in the United States to take the ADAT exam along with the INBDE exam to increase their chance of getting interviews from the US dental schools. The ADAT exam is consist of 200 questions in three separate parts which include Biomedical science, Clinical science, Data, Research, and Evidence-based dentistry.
