Did you know, the American Dental Association has a successful Seal of Acceptance program, so you know if a dental product is safe and effective to use? Yes, it’s true! Dental products can be extremely overwhelming to choose from when you are shopping at the store. That is why, Dr. Johnson, Dr. Foust, and our dental team here at Dentists at Memorial Park are happy to talk to you about this program, so you know what to look for the next time you need a dental product for you and your family.

The American Dental Association, also known as the ADA, has spent over fifty years focusing on dental care. Part of that focus has been on the dental care products people are using and bringing into their home for their use or their loved one’s use. To help people know which product can assist you, the ADA has created the program of placing a stamp on any dental product that has been tested safe and efficient for use.

This stamp from the Seal of Acceptance program is crucial to note, so you know if items like toothpaste, floss, toothbrushes, mouthwashes, and other dental products can improve your oral health rather than harm it. There are thousands of dental products submitted for testing each year, yet only the products that pass all the tests and research are worthy of the stamp of acceptance.

The next time you are in the market looking for a new dental product, look for the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance. That way, you can keep your smile healthy using the safest and most effective products possible.
