Seal Program Overview

The Guidelines for Participation in the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance Program are provided for informational purposes only. They may be modified at any time. These Guidelines provide a general overview of the ADA Seal of Acceptance Program. They do not govern a company’s rights to use the ADA Seal.  All rights to use the ADA Seal are governed solely by a separate license agreement between the ADA and the manufacturer or distributor of an Accepted product. The ADA Seal of Acceptance is a registered certification mark of the American Dental Association. The ADA Seal of Acceptance may not be used on or in connection with a product until after it has been granted the Seal of Acceptance by the Council on Scientific Affairs and only after a license agreement has been signed. Upon termination or expiration of the ADA license agreement, regardless of cause, all rights of a company to use the ADA Seal immediately cease.
