  1. Hey, it’s usually conducted at U of T’s Faculty of Dentistry campus, which is a separate building not connected to the U of T St. George campus. I advise you to check the specific address on your DAT confirmation letter. I wish you the best for your DAT.
  2. Yeah, I was told by my dentist that they have 2 procedures for whitening and I was planning to get the procedure that did not make my teeth extremely white. She said they would still look natural unlike the other procedure.
  3. I’m planning to get my teeth whitened/ bleached before I begin dental school (starts in a few months). I’m still undecided about this. My teeth are good, and don’t really “need” it (I feel my teeth lack lustre) but I want to look my best before I start and want to make a good first impression on everyone I will be meeting soon. I feel like getting my teeth whitened will give me that extra confidence. I also know that the whitening/ bleaching process can make your teeth sensitive. Although it may be temporary, I don’t want to start having issues with my teeth just before dental school begins (Am I worrying too much?). Another thing is that perhaps once I become a dental student, I can get my teeth whitened free of cost. So, is it worth spending around $250 on a whitening/ bleaching procedure a couple of months before dental school? All of your thoughts and advice is much appreciated!
  4. Yeah, I believe it’s new. It wasn’t there when I applied in December of 2018. Also, I didn’t have to use the application services listed.
  5. I think you should perhaps specify which university/ province you are looking in!
  6. Hello @Censored, For UofT Dentistry, you can check out the following links: 1. https://www.dentistry.utoronto.ca/how-to-apply#edit-group-dds-program 2. https://www.dentistry.utoronto.ca/how-to-apply/application-page I would recommend you spend some time navigating the websites for each school you wish to apply to and find out the dates the applications become available. Then, mark it on your calendar or create an excel spreadsheet where you can list all schools, their deadlines, and documents required. If you intend to apply to quite a few schools, I would recommend that you organize all of this information. I hope you find this helpful. I wish you the best in your application process!
  7. For the General Chemistry section on the DAT, I would recommend you watch Chad’s videos on Youtube. That way you are still reviewing the material without having to expend a ton on mental energy. Good luck.
  8. Hey @periodent What do you specifically struggle with? I would say the key is to really hone in on what your weaknesses are and then tackle them one by one. It is good to have a general idea of what "good interview skills" are but I think what will truly help you get better is making specific tweaks and changes to your current interview style.
