When you go to the store for toothpaste, mouthwash, teeth whitener, and other oral care products, the team at the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria VA reminds you to be sure you choose products with the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance.
In this post we look at four ways the ADA seal can help you make good oral care choices for you and your family.
1. Products with the seal have to be safe and effective, so you won’t waste your money on something that won’t work, or worse, can harm you.
2. The American Dental Association (ADA) only places its seal on a product after serious scientific testing. This usually means that manufacturers have to meet standards even higher than those required by law.
3. When you purchase products with the ADA seal, it’s practically like shopping with a dentist by your side! Who wouldn’t want that extra knowledge and information?
4. The ADA seal is not the organization’s endorsement of one particular product or another. It’s a verification of the assertions made by said product, claims on which savvy consumers can rely.
