The American Dental Association (the ADA) is among the most recognized dental authority groups. They provide beneficial information for choosing the best tooth-brushing products, they work with dental education, and they accurately describe dental science.
On many products, the ADA leaves a seal of approval which means that it has been “scientifically evaluated to be safe and effective,” according to the ADA. The ADA also says that, “to obtain the ADA Seal, companies frequently are asked to meet higher standards than what is required.” It is apparent that the ADA thoroughly researches the products they approve. They test all things dental, including water flossers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthguards, chewing gum, water filters, floss, and other products. Next time you are shopping for dental merchandise, look for the ADA Seal of Approval, and it will be like our dentist, Dr. Alan J. White, is shopping with you.
The ADA Division of Science also researches dental issues, procedures, ethics, and solutions. Among other things, they are currently researching problems with amalgam, bisphenol A, health screening programs, infections, and price standards. They work on spreading awareness to dangers and finding resolutions to issues.
The ADA annually holds America’s Dental Meeting in October which is open to the public. The latest dental research is presented by dental professionals from all over the country.
The ADA can provide a lot of answers, but you can call Dr. Alan J. White, D.D.S. at 540-886-1979 if you need help or solutions to anything dental.
