Like many industries, oral hygiene products and their manufacturers are in constant competition for sales and profit. This drives some manufacturers to produce oral hygiene products with a dubious marketing claim to trick you. This can often make it challenging for you to find the highest quality of oral hygiene products.

In response to this, the American Dental Association instituted their Seal of Acceptance program in 1931 to help consumers choose the best oral hygiene products for their family. Since that time, it has become the standard of quality for oral hygiene manufacturers.

An oral hygiene manufacturer can submit a product to the ADA before it’s launch. The ADA will then test its 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.

At the same time, the ADA also provides an index of all oral hygiene products that have earned the seal on their website. This gives you another tool to help you pick the best oral hygiene products for your family.
