DAT - Sending out Scores

I was wondering if anyone could tell me the # of schools I should send my scores out to. I'm not sure if I should just send it to the ones I really want to go to, or all of the schools I've been considering. For example on the ADA website it says "You should have an official score report sent to each of the dental schools to which you are considering application even though you have not yet completed filing admission applications to these schools." But where I apply to / send my scores to really also depends on my DAT scores themselves, if I do really well I probably wouldn't apply to so many of my backups, and if I do poorly I'd probably apply to more of my backups. So I was just curious if anyone has added/changed their schools that their DAT scores were sent to and the cost/time it took to do so. As far as application strength goes I'd consider myself a "average" applicant I'm not particularly strong (i.e no 4.0 here) but I'm not hovering around a 3.0 either. Any advice?
