The ADA: Promoting Dental Health Since 1859

American Dental Association Allen Park

Hello, thank you for visiting the Szalai & Szalai DDS – Allen Park Dental Care blog.  Along with our fantastic team, we have been providing first-rate dental care in Dearborn for many years.

Today’s message is about the American Dental Association. You have probably seen the ADA emblem 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 societies. It was established 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 a confirmation of the assertions made by said product. Companies who want the ADA certification 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 ADA certification.

The ADA does more than assess dental products. Here are some other ways the ADA works to perform its mission:

  • Provides resources to support dentists and their practices
  • Educates the public about oral health
  • Works to maximize access to dental care
  • Offers guidance on important issues that influence the dental industry
  • Cooperates with other organizations on scientific research projects and public health initiatives
  • Offers scholarships to dental students

For more information about the ADA, visit their website. At  Szalai & Szalai DDS – Allen Park Dental Care, the daily dental care we offer to our valued patients is bolstered by the ADA.
