Why is The ADA Seal of Acceptance So Important?

As pediatric dentists we only provide the safest and most quality care for your children, this includes using only products that received the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. You may see the ADA seal on many toothpastes and brushes, but have you ever stopped to wonder what it really means, and why we consistently recommend only products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance?

The ADA has been around for more than 125 years. The Association’s goal is to keep consumers safe from extravagant claims of tooth product effectiveness. In 1930 they adopted guidelines to evaluate the products submitted for their safety and effectiveness. Companies do not have to submit their dental products to the ADA for a seal, but those that do can prove that their value, safety, and effectiveness by putting their products thorough rigorous scientific testing.

When you choose ADA approved products for your child’s oral care you are choosing products the highest authority in dentistry has proven to be safe and effective. We only recommend ADA approved products for our amazing patients because we know they work, and every five years they must go through the rigorous process again.

If you have any question about the safety of the toothpaste your child is using, look no further than the packaging for the ADA Seal of Acceptance. If you have further questions on how these products can improve your child’s oral health, look no further than your pediatric dentists at Pediatric Dentistry Of Central Florida.
