Legal Resources

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.

  • The ADA’s Antitrust Policy reaffirms the ADA’s compliance with all applicable laws, provides an overview of antitrust requirements, and sets forth specific guidelines to assist in identifying and avoiding possible antitrust issues.
  • Through the Contract Analysis Service, the ADA provides information that can help you better understand provisions in proposed dental provider contracts with third party payers.
  • ADA Litigation Support addresses possible ADA participation in lawsuits that may be of national significance to dentistry.
