Apply to Take the ADAT
Thank you for your interest in applying for the ADAT. Please continue reading and check this page regularly for updates and additional information.
Apply for a partial fee waiver before you apply to test. There are a limited number of partial fee waivers, download and complete the ADAT Partial Fee Waiver Form.
Applications are being accepted now and you can start the ADAT application process, by obtaining a DENTPIN® and reading the official ADAT Guide. On the terms and conditions page of the application, you will be asked to confirm that you have read the Guide and agree to the rules and regulations.
Keep in mind testing fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. There are no exceptions. Your credit or debit card will be charged when you submit your application.
When inputting your name, use the name as it appears on your official government issued identification, such as a driver’s license or passport. When you arrive at the test center, the name on the IDs you present must match exactly the name on your application or you will be denied admission to test. If you are denied admission, you will need to submit a new application and you will forfeit your previous fee.
