    Hi-

    I know this is such an elementary question to ask here...
    but I thought I need physics 1&2 for DAT as somebody told me on this forum half a year ago.

    I just checked ADA website and it doesnot mention Physics at all!
    It just says it includes "applied math" problems in QRT.

    Thanks!

    There is no physics on the DAT but you need it for dental school class requirement.

    So the story goes:
    One day during class a discussion about requirements to get into medical school began. A student in the back of the class raised his hand and asked: "Professor, why do we need physics for medical school?" The professor's reply was quick and to the point: "Physics, saves lives." The class sat in silence at the professor's gruff statement until the same student in the back of the classroom finally asked: " What? How does physics save lives?" The professor replied:" Physics keeps dumb people out of medical school."
