The American Dental Association is your advocate for a healthy mouth for life. Nearly 7 out of 10 dentists in the U.S. are ADA members. As doctors of oral health, one of our primary goals is to help you defend against oral disease. Oral health is an important part of your overall health, so it’s important that you and your family practice daily preventive care such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, eating a balanced diet and visiting your dentist regularly.
The ADA publishes cutting edge research in the Journal of the American Dental Association and conducts educational sessions for dentists to advance the practice of dentistry and enhance your patient experience. And to help you make informed decisions about the dental care products you buy, look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on the package—your assurance that the product has been rigorously reviewed by independent scientific experts and meets the ADA’s criteria for safety and effectiveness.
