Have you seen an ADA seal of approval on your toothpaste container or another oral care product? Well, ADA stands for American Dental Association. Dr. Jamine Rogers is a member of the ADA. What is that about? Read on.

What is the American Dental Association (ADA)?

The ADA has over 161,000 members all around America and even in Puerto Rico. It’s the nation’s largest and most reputable dental association.

What does the ADA do?

• It provides accurate, up-to-date education about dentistry, catered toward both dentists and patients
• The ADA Foundation offers disaster relief to members in need, offers scholarships for dental students, and advocates for children’s dental health.
• Member dentists get benefits like insurance plans, travel savings, and discounts on ADA products

What is the ADA Seal of Approval?

The ADA seal is the highest stamp of approval for dental products. Oral care companies submit extremely detailed data from several rigorous clinical or lab studies to the ADA for review, paying thousands of dollars in application fees. If they are found to meet the standards for safety and effectiveness, they can put ADA seal on their products’ containers. This is all to increase consumer confidence and trust.
