About the ADA

 
What do you think of when you hear the words American Dental Association? Going to the dentist? Buying toothpaste? Three out of four dentists?

The American Dental Association is so much more. 

The not-for-profit ADA is the nation's largest dental association, representing 157,000 dentist members. The premier source of dental health information, the ADA has advocated for the public's health and promoted the art and science of dentistry since 1859. The ADA's state-of-the-art research facilities develop and test dental products and materials that have advanced the practice of dentistry and made the patient experience more positive. The ADA Seal of Acceptance long has been a valuable and respected guide to consumer dental care products. The monthly The Journal of the American Dental Association is the ADA's flagship publication and the best-read scientific journal in dentistry. For more information about the ADA, visit www.ada.org.
