The ADA: Promoting Dental Health Since 1859

American Dental Association Alexandria

Hello, thank you for visiting the Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry blog. We are Drs. Geren & Mady. Along with our fantastic team, our practice has been providing exceptional cosmetic and family dentistry care since 1983.

Today’s cosmetic dentistry blog post is about the American Dental Association. You have probably seen the ADA logo on toothpaste and floss—but what else do you know about this dental association?

The ADA’s self-proclaimed purpose is to improve the level of public oral health by supporting the dental industry through not-for-profit federal, state, and local chapters. It was founded 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 assertions made by said 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 certification.

The ADA does more than assess dental products. Here are some other ways the ADA works to carry out its mission:

  • Provides resources to support dentists and their practices
  • Educates the public about oral health
  • Works to maximize access to dental care
  • Offers advice on essential issues that impact the dental industry
  • Works with with other organizations on scientific research projects and public health initiatives
  • Offers scholarships to dental students
