What is the American Dental Association (ADA)?

The ADA is the largest and most reputable dental association in the nation with over 161,000 members.

What does the ADA do?

It provides dental regulations as well as accurate, up-to-date and accessible education about dentistry for both dentists and patients. You can trust Dr. Kathleen Tantuco to be updated on all the latest dental innovations and regulations so they can provide quality dental care. Member dentists also get benefits like insurance plans, travel savings, and discounts on ADA products. The ADA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the ADA, offers disaster relief to members in need, scholarships for dental students, and works to improve children’s education, awareness and access to dental care.

What is the ADA Seal of Acceptance?

The ADA seal of acceptance is the gold standard for oral hygiene products. Companies submit extremely detailed data from several rigorous studies to the ADA for review. If they are found to meet the requirements for safety and effectiveness, they can use the ADA seal on their products, denoting that you, the customer, can trust them to be both safe and effective.
