The American Dental Association (ADA) is the USA’s foremost group of dentists, with at least 160,000 members in its ranks; that’s at least one member per 200 citizens of the US! Since its origin in 1859, the ADA has headed the charge for increasing the public’s dental health through providing information on oral health and increasing the skills and success of its members.

The ADA’s mission is to lead dental practitioners at all levels of society, so each 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 association, its leadership consists of a 480-officer House of Delegates and a Board of Trustees.

All the great work the members of the ADA perform can’t be summarized into a single post. (Or at the very least not one that wasn’t too long!) To find out how the action of the ADA affects you, check your oral health products for the ADA seal of approval; the association approves oral health goods so that you can understand which ones are the best to use!

The ADA gives school scholarships to high-achieving oral health students and disaster-relief/emergency supplies to those in need. If you’re going to college or vocational school for dentistry or in need of disaster-relief supplies, please check out the ADA’s website for more information on whether you qualify for aid.

Our dentist, Dr. Alexis Mai, is a member of the ADA. This means that we pass along the benefits of ADA membership to you: the knowledge, industry-approved practices and trust, credibility and approval the seal carries. If you’d like to schedule a checkup with our team at Elite Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Cincinnati, Ohio, please give us a call at 513-771-5212 ASAP.
