I think you need a really good DAT score to have a shot, you have a lot of C's in your prerequisites, and your GPA is below average for accepted students at, I would say, all dental schools, so you need a really good test score to stand out.

I agree with the above statement, the DAT is really important in your case. It's nice that you have alot of upper division biology classes under your belt. Maybe you should consider doing a post-bac program?

Average of all test takers are probably around 17. However, in your case, you might want to shoot for something like 20+ to make up for your GPA.
