The ADA Dental Symptom Checker does not give dental or medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. By using the Symptom Checker, you agree that it is for general information only.
The Symptom Checker is not for minors. Symptom Checker information about children is provided for parents and guardians. Parents and guardians are responsible for any interpretation or use of information obtained from the Symptom Checker for a minor.
The System Checker does not take the place of an examination, advice, or treatment by a dentist or other healthcare provider. By using the Symptom Checker, you agree that you understand this, that you will not rely on information from the Symptom Checker as if it were the same thing as an examination, advice or treatment by a dentist, physician or other healthcare provider, and that you will not represent to anyone that the information is a diagnosis, advice, examination, or treatment.
Even if you believe that you have identified a disease or condition by using the Symptom Checker, your dentist or health care provider may determine that you have something different from what you identified. No matter what, if you have symptoms that indicate possible disease or other health disorder you should see a dentist or appropriate health care professional right away.
If you decide not to see a dentist or other health care provider, you are responsible for that decision, whether or not you relied on the information that you obtained from the Symptom Checker when you made that decision.
The information on Symptom Checker cannot be as good as the information available from a dentist or other healthcare provider. The information on the Symptom Checker is provided “as is” and without warranty, including any warranty for a particular purpose.
