What Is The American Dental Association?

Posted .

Have you ever heard of the American Dental Association, or seen those words anywhere? Chances are, you’ve seen it more often than you’d realize. But do you know what it means, and what the association is?

Today, we’re going to take a few minutes to explain the importance of the ADA, and its seal, to you.

What is it?
The American Dental Association is the professional association for all dental professionals in North America. It brings together bright minds to help make sure that your dentists can offer you the best possible treatment.

Why is it important?
The ADA has certain standards and practices that, through a consensus by all members. These are considered industry best practice. They’re the ones by which Dr. Christopher Louie practices.

What about the seal?
If you’ve ever bought something off a late-night infomercial, you’ve likely been disappointed in its performance. The ADA seal is the safeguard against that in the dental world. In order to get the ADA seal, a product has to be proven to do what it says. If whitening toothpaste doesn’t whiten effectively, it doesn’t get the seal.
