The Seal of Acceptance Program

Posted .

Did you know that the American Dental Association has a Seal of Acceptance program, so you know if a specific dental product is safe and effective to use? Well, it’s true! Dental products can be stressful to choose from when you are shopping at the store. That is why, Dr. Sheikh, Dr. Shazib, and our team here at Kennebunk Center for Dentistry in Kennebunk, Maine, are excited 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 more than fifty years focusing on oral health care. Part of that focus has been on the dozens of dental care products people are using and bringing into their home. To help people know which product helps them and their family, the ADA has created the unique program of placing a stamp on any dental product that has been tested safe and efficient for use.

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

So, the next time you are at the store looking for a dental product, look for the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance. That way, you can keep you and your family’s smile healthy using the best products possible.
