The ADA standards program establishes baseline standards and technical recommendations for almost every tool used in modern dentistry, from radiographic systems to sealants to manual toothbrushes. Its mission is to ensure the highest level of patient safety and professional satisfaction through the publication of clear industry standards for both dental products and dental informatics.
The ADA is an accredited dental standards body of the American National Standards Institute, as well as the official U.S. representative for the International Organization for Standardization Technical Committee 106 on Dentistry.
