The American Dental Association (ADA) is the USA’s prominent not-for-profit association of dental practitioners, with at least 160,000 members in its ranks; that’s at least one member for every 200 citizens of the US! Since its beginnings in 1859, the ADA has led the charge for strengthening the public’s dental health through providing information on oral health and increasing the skills and success of its members.
The ADA’s goal is to lead dentists at all levels , so every member of the ADA participates with at least one of the ADA’s 53 state and 545 local chapters. Because the ADA is a not-for-profit organization, its leadership consists of a 480-officer House of Delegates and a Board of Trustees.
All the great work the members of the ADA do can’t be summarized into a lone post. (Or at the very least not one that wasn’t ridiculously too long!) To see how the action of the ADA affects you, check your dental health goods for the ADA seal; the association approves oral health products so that you can understand which ones are the best to use!
The ADA gives scholarships to high-achieving oral health students and emergency supplies to those in need. If you’re going to college or vocational school for dentistry or in need of disaster-relief supplies, check out the ADA’s website for more information on whether you may qualify for aid.
Our dentists, Dr. Davidson and Dr. Seamons, are members of the ADA. This means that we pass along the benefits of ADA membership to you: the knowledge, industry-approved practices and the trust, credibility and approval the seal carries.
