The American Dental Association recently launched a new website at ADA.org/Seal. It is a re-vamped site that discusses the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance.
They even made an easy-to-access list of every single product that has received the ADA seal. I’d like to think that maybe they were jealous of the full list of products receiving the ADA Seal that I published a few months ago!
The new website has many new features. For example, if you’ve ever wanted to know what it takes for a product to get the ADA Seal of Acceptance, the ADA now provides downloadable PDF files that let you see exactly what is required for a product to gain the seal in a certain category.
For example, if you’ve ever wondered what it takes for a sugar-free chewing gum to get the ADA Seal, you can find out by viewing this PDF file.
You can view and download all of the other requirements from the ADA Seal: Guidelines for Product Acceptance Page here.
ADA Seal Videos
There is also a video page that contains many videos about the seal, including the whole process that a product has to go through to obtain the ADA Seal:
ADA Seal Product Comparison Page
Another feature that I found interesting was that the ADA now has a full description of all products that are given the ADA Seal. This allows them to provide a compare page where you can compare the many different products that have received the ADA Seal. For example, if you wanted to compare Colgate Total to Crest Pro Health, you can view this page which I included as a screenshot to the right of this text so you can get an idea for how the tool works.
Questions or Comments?
The site contains many other features that I didn’t mention here, but you can check them all out by visiting the new ADA Seal site at ADA.org/Seal.
I think that this resource is a great addition to the ADA’s new website. It allows consumers to fully research products with the ADA Seal and to fully understand why a product has received the seal.
Before this new site, it seemed that consumers had to blindly accept the fact that a product received the seal.
Do you have any questions or comments about this new resource from the American Dental Association? I’d love to hear what you have to say and answer any questions you may have in the comments section below. Thanks for reading!
