Have you updated your Find-a-Dentist profile on ADA.org?

Have you updated your Find-a-Dentist profile on ADA.org?

As the launch date for the ADA’s new consumer website “MouthHealthy.org“ approaches, make sure patients have access to the most up-to-date information about you and your practice.


The goal of MouthHealthy.org is to provide patients with timely and credible oral health information on prevention, care and treatment in a highly engaging user experience. Consumer research has indicated that patients value a tool that can help them find dentists, so plans are in the works to feature Find-a-Dentist on every page of MouthHealthy.org. Member dentists are being reminded to update their profiles on Find-a-Dentist before MouthHealthy.org launches in June.

As a benefit of membership in the American Dental Association, Find-a-Dentist is a great no-cost way for members to promote their practices to the public. Dentists can manage their own profiles, which include photos, practice information and a variety of other information (office address, map and hours; contact information, including practice website link; education; languages spoken; years in practice; insurance acceptance and payment options; and recognized-specialty affiliations).

As MouthHealthy.org launches, Find-a-Dentist will move from ADA.org and unveil a new look for its search and results pages. One new search option will allow prospective patients to search for dentists with photos, so you are encouraged to upload a photo along with your other practice information. Member profiles will still be available on ADA.org as part of the Member Directory, which can only be accessed by ADA members.
