Do the American DAT if you are planning to go to an American dental school. For sure, you won't be considered international, but not sure if you'll be considered OOS of all 50 states lol. That would be awkward. Maybe you'll be in-state of the state in which your parents live. Call some schools.

With one exception, US dental schools require prerequisites to have been taken at a US institution.

Incorrect. I'm a Canadian from a Canadian University who is now attending a US dental school. Many Universities here offer courses that are one to one with American courses.

Yes, Yes, Yes. It applies to international students other than Canadian and possibly others. The available information is somewhat vague on this subject. TY.
