The ADA Standards Committees seek professionals from all areas of interest to contribute their expertise to two new draft standards approved for circulation, review and comment.

The ADA has played a key role in the development of dental standards since 1928 and is an American National Standards Institute accredited standards developer.

The projects follow:

•    Proposed ANSI/ADA Standard No. 131 Dental Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Machinery Machinable Zirconia Blanks specifies the requirements and test methods for partially stabilized zirconia materials used for the fabrication of dental fixed restorations.

•    Proposed ADA Technical Report No. 1069 SCDI Standard Terms, Definitions and Acronyms contains standard terms, definitions and acronyms for dental informatics.  The ADA Standards Committee on Dental Informatics developed the draft standard to provide a standardized informatics terminology for ADA informatics standards and technical reports.

For more information or to participate in any of the projects, call the ADA toll-free number, ext. 2506, or email standards@ada.org.
