    bio 18
    chem 21
    o.chem 21
    reading 18( 39th percentile..:p )
    Quantitative 22 (problems were weird.. one problem was really simple but there was no answer on the choice!)
    PAT 23
    TS 19
    AA 20

    finally done.. but I want to take it again in August.. I'm going to submit my application in this May.
    Do dental schools take a look at DAT scores of August before the whole interview process begin?

    Those are some solid scores, are you sure you want to re-take?

    I totally wouldn't re-take you have a solid GPA, and you didn't have a really low section that could hold you back, taking it would be a waste of time, focus on other parts of your app. good luck!

    congrats on a job well done! those are some great scores...re-taking sounds a little risky though.

    good luck!

    If you think you can do better than 18 in bio and 18 in RC then definayely retake. SInce you have such a high GPA, i bet you are not satisfied with those scores.

    Its totally upto you, but I mean if you know you can do better than 19/20/23 then retake is the way to go!!!
