From PR Newswire – and by the by, why oh why can I only find current articles on the ADA, not the CDA? Inquiring minds want to know…….
“The ADA designed the new ADA Seal of Acceptance Web area
to provide information that will be helpful to the public in selecting
dental products and to dentists when discussing products with their
patients,” said Dr. Ada Cooper, an ADA Consumer Advisor spokesperson and a practicing dentist in New York.

Web area will now allow consumers and dentists to review detailed
information on all ADA Accepted products as well as compare attributes
of up to six products simultaneously. Visitors to the Web area can
browse ADA Seal Products by product name, category or manufacturer.
example, a visitor to the ADA Seal Web area might want to search for
fluoride toothpastes that also reduce gingivitis and tooth sensitivity.
The visitor would simply go to the “Browse by Category” area,click
“toothpaste,” and select those properties from the drop-down menu. The
search will reveal all of the ADA Seal toothpastes that fit those
criteria. They can click the links for a detailed product information
page that tells why it earned the ADA Seal, what it does, its
ingredients and label information. Contact information for the
product’s manufacturer is also provided.
The new ADA Seal of Acceptance Web area
features a database of the more than 300 ADA Seal products that have
been independently evaluated for safety and effectiveness by members of
the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs (CSA), ADA staff scientists and
individuals selected from the council’s pool of 130 expert consultants.
