When you go to your Mansfield, Bentley Village, or Cook’s Meadow drugstore or supermarket looking for toothpaste, mouthwash, teeth whitener, or another oral care product, be sure that the product you choose carries the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance.
Today in our Arlington dental blog, we are going to look at 4 ways the ADA seal can help you make good oral care choices for you and your family.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. When you purchase products with the ADA seal, it’s practically like shopping with your Arlington dentist or dental hygienist right by your side! Who wouldn’t want that extra knowledge and information?
4. The ADA Seal is not an endorsement of one particular product or another, but rather it is a verification of the claims made by said product, claims on which savvy consumers can rely.
