This post from David Rice DDS in Elgin is about the American Dental Association. You have probably seen the ADA seal on toothpaste and floss—but what else do you know about this dental association?
The ADA’s self-proclaimed mission is to improve the level of public oral health by supporting the dental industry through not-for-profit federal, state, and local chapters. It was founded in 1859 and is run by its members, which currently total over 160,000.
The ADA Seal of Acceptance is not an endorsement of a product per se, but rather is a confirmation of the assertions made by said product. Companies who want the ADA seal for a product must submit proof of rigorous scientific testing. Once submitted, the ADA re-tests the product to further verify results. There are currently over 300 products with the ADA certification.
At David Rice DDS in Elgin we recommend buying only dental products with the ADA seal! People from Bartlet, South Elgin, and Wayne come to us for dental implants, complete general and family dentistry, and much more. Schedule an appointment today!
