If you’ve seen the ADA seal of acceptance on your container of toothpaste, mouthwash, or another oral care product, you might be curious. Did you know that ADA stands for American Dental Association? Dr. McFatter is actually a member of the ADA. Here are two commonly asked questions about the ADA and their answers:

What is the American Dental Association (ADA)?

The ADA is the U.S.A.’s largest dental association. It has over 161,000 members! It provides accurate, current accessible education about dentistry for both dentists and patients. This helps to regulate the field of dentistry in America. Member dentists get benefits such as insurance plans, travel savings, and discounts. The ADA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the ADA, provides disaster relief to members in need, scholarships for dental students, advocates for children’s dental health and other things.

What is the ADA Seal of Acceptance?

Data from several rigorous studies are submitted to the ADA for review. Oral care companies pay thousands of dollars in application fees. If they are found to meet the requirements, they can use the ADA seal. Products with this seal are safe and reliable.
