Here’s a reminder from the team at St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD: When you go to the store looking for oral care products, be sure to check that it has the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance.
There are four ways the ADA seal can help you make good choices for you and your family, whether it’s for toothpaste, mouthwash, or some other oral care product.
- Products with the seal have to be safe and effective, so you won’t waste your money on something that won’t work, or worse, can harm you.
- The American Dental Association (ADA) only places their seal on a product after serious scientific testing. This usually means that manufacturers have to meet higher standards than those required by law.
- When you purchase products with the ADA seal, it’s practically like shopping with your Mechanicsville dentist or dental hygienist right by your side! Who wouldn’t want that extra knowledge and information?
- The ADA seal is not the organization’s testimonial of one particular product or another, but rather is a verification of the assertions made by said product, claims on which savvy consumers can rely.
