ADA Clinical Evaluators (ACE) Reports

Read how your peers evaluate some of today’s most pressing dental topics and products. New and relevant reports are added quarterly.

Why read these reports?

Community and network accountability is at the forefront of dental progress.

Part of being an ADA member is having incredible access to the top dentists and dental professionals in the country. Here we enlist these members to share their important experiences in hopes of helping you understand how your clinical decision making compares, along with helping you to learn new strategies for ensuring a safe and effective clinical practice. You can also earn easy CE credit on the reports!

Want to get involved?

The ADA Clinical Evaluators (ACE) Panel is a network of practicing ADA member dentists.

The ACE Panel is made up of dentists – like you – who participate in short surveys related to the evaluation of dental products, prescribing habits and other relevant clinical topics. We’d love your help in growing this network and continually improving these peer evaluation reports for all.
