I tried searching for differences between the two DATs but could only come up with the Overview for the CDN DAT. Any one know?

Yep, the American DAT is the Dental Admissions Test, and the Canadian DAT is the Dental Aptitude Test. They each report the following scores (from the following sections), respectively:


American DAT

Academic Average
PAT
Quantitive Reasoning
Reading Comprehension
Biology
General Chem.
Organic Chem.
Total Science

Canadian DAT

Academic Average
PAT
Reading Comprehension
Biology
Chemistry
Chalk Carving
Total Science


Especially note the lack of math on the Canadian DAT, and the addition of Chalk Carving.
