When you’re buying oral hygiene products for your children, you want to get them the best of the best. But with the startlingly large amount of products available, how do you know what’s best for your kids?

Well, here at Douglas Dental we have one very important tip to keep in mind as you shop for oral hygiene products for your little ones.

In 1931, the American Dental Associated initiated their Seal of Acceptance program to better help consumers identify the most effective oral hygiene products that are worthy of purchase. Since that time, the ADA Seal has become the standard for participating manufacturers.

The process of earning the ADA seal of acceptance is voluntary. Before a manufacturer launches a new oral hygiene product, they can submit it to the ADA for testing and research. The product’s active ingredients are rigorously tested and applied to strict guidelines for safety and effectiveness.

If the product meets all of the rigorous guidelines, it will be approved and the Seal of Acceptance to be printed on the label.

If you’re not sure whether a product is safe for your kids, or you want the opinion of Dr. Darren Haws on certain brands he prefers, then please don’t hesitate to call us today at 520-364-3361.
