The ADA launched the Advanced Dental Admission Test (ADAT) in April of 2016 to test dental students, as well as practicing dentists, interested in postgraduate training. The purpose of the exam is to provide advanced dental education programs with a means to assess applicants’ potential for success.

In regards to a study approach, we encourage our users to use ADAT Knockout as not only a testing tool, but a learning tool as well. Our questions and explanations are structured to provide comprehensive topic review as well as target the breadth of information targeted by the ADAT. Using a review book to start off is a good option too. Based on our content writers' experience with the exam and recent test taker feedback, we recommend reviewing First Aid, Mosby’s, or Boards Busters NBDE I and II to help build a solid foundation. By using ADAT Knockout as a core resource and linking our program with other reading material, we're confident that you'll develop an incredibly effective way to knockout the ADAT!
Test takers reported the most success when they allowed themselves 2-3 months to study for the exam.
That varies program to program depending on the school curriculum. The most ideal time would be at the end of your third or during your fourth year of dental school, after successfully passing all your board exams and maximizing your in-school clinical experience.
