Does your knowledge include very much information about the American Dental Association and their ADA Seal of Acceptance? Do you consistently look for the seal when you shop for dental hygiene items or is it something that flies under the radar for you? We are here today to quiz you on this topic, so we can ensure you’re using this option to optimize your purchases to protect your oral health.

Quiz Questions: True? Or False?

  1. True or False: The ADA Seal of Acceptance is something that has only been provided to a few products over the years.
  2. True or False: It’s generally best to select products manufactured for your oral health by looking for the acceptance seal on the label because you know it means it will work and won’t cause you any complications.
  3. True or False: Once a company receives the seal for their particular product, it is a lifetime guarantee that the item will give you the results it promises it will provide.

Quiz Answers

  1. False. The seal is stamped on multiple products. Today, you may find it on over 200 items associated with your oral health and dental care. As a result, you have access to tested, effective products that will most certainly provide you with all that they promise.
  2. True. When you see the ADA Seal of Acceptance, it’s like a thumbs up or an A+, letting you know that the item has already been tested on your behalf. It is effective and it is not going to result in damage.
  3. False. The acceptance is only for a period of five years. Once that time elapses, the item is up for review and often testing again (during which time alterations, improvements, and any other changes must be reported to the American Dental Association). This means that the seal is always a fairly fresh representation of a brand’s product.
