Invasive marketing messages and advertising claims can sometimes cloud the difference between a cosmetic oral hygiene product and a quality product that deserves to be in your daily oral hygiene routine. In response to this problem, the American Dental Association instituted their Seal of Acceptance program. Since its inception in 1931, it has become the industry’s standard for identifying a high-quality oral hygiene product.

A product’s participation in the program is voluntary. If a manufacturer wants to earn the ADA Seal of Acceptance for the oral hygiene product, they can submit it to the ADA for testing and research.

The ADA then tests the active ingredients for safety and effectiveness as part of an oral hygiene routine. If the product meets the rigorous guidelines, it will earn the right to print the Seal of Acceptance on the label. This means you should feel confident in its ability to help you maintain your good oral health.

In order to further help consumers with their research, the ADA also provides an index of all oral hygiene products that have earned the seal on their website.
