The ADA actively monitors and engages in legal issues that are important to ADA members. The Division of Legal Affairs offers legal resources and information to help members better understand legal issues affecting dentists and dental practices.
Through the Contract Analysis Service, the ADA provides information that can help you understand provisions in proposed contracts with dental benefit companies.
ADA Litigation Support addresses possible ADA participation in lawsuits that may be of national significance to dentistry.
The ADA Legal Resources Publications and Articles section, which is exclusively available to members, provides downloadable publications and articles on a variety of legal topics to help you protect your practice and your patients.
The foregoing was prepared by the ADA Division of Legal Affairs. Its purpose is to promote awareness of legal issues that may affect dentists and dental practices. This document is not intended to provide either legal or professional advice, and cannot address every federal, state, and local law that could affect a dentist or dental practice. Because the law varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and sometimes changes more rapidly than these materials, we make no representations or warranties of any kind about the completeness, accuracy, or any other quality of the information in the above piece. Nothing here represents advice or opinion as to any particular situation you may be facing; for that, it is necessary to consult directly with a properly qualified professional or with an attorney admitted to practice in your jurisdiction for appropriate legal or professional advice. To the extent the above includes links to any websites, the ADA intends no endorsement of their content and implies no affiliation with the organizations that provide their content. Nor does the ADA make any representations or warranties about the information provided on those sites, which we do not control in any way.
