    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.
