While it’s unfortunate, some of the oral hygiene products sold in stores do not have the sufficient quality to be used in an effective oral hygiene routine. For the average consumer, this can make picking an effective product very difficult.

To address this serious issue, the American Dental Association instituted their Seal of Acceptance program. Since its inception in 1931, it has become the industry standard for identifying a high-quality oral hygiene product.

An oral hygiene product’s participation in the program is voluntary. If a manufacturer wants to earn the ADA Seal of Acceptance for an oral hygiene product, they can submit it to the ADA. The active ingredients will then be tested and researched for safety and effectiveness.

If a 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 maintain the good oral health of you and your family.

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.
