The ADA: Promoting Dental Health Since 1859

American Dental Association Salt Lake City

This article from The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City is about the American Dental Association. You have probably seen the ADA symbol on toothpaste and floss, but what else do you know about this dental organization?

The ADA’s purpose is to improve the level of public oral health by supporting the dental industry through not-for-profit federal, state, and local associations. 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 is a verification of the claims made by that 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 the ADA credential.

So, if you see the ADA seal on a tube of toothpaste or some other product, you can rest assured that it has met a high standard. At The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City, we also have high standards in family and children’s dentistry, treatment for gum recession, and many other procedures.
