If I understand correctly, dynatrace is tracing this from the point of view of the client. So Jared's point would stand - there is infrastructure (ie network latency) included in the time.

You should monitor from the Oracle point of view and see the stats there to confirm whether the max (database) time goes that high.

Personally, I would shoot anyone who configures a pointless additional select statement to check connectivity; I blogged on it<>a couple of years ago and it has come up several times on this list. But that's another matter.
