What do you think of when you hear the words American Dental Association? Going to the dentist? Buying toothpaste? Three out of four dentists?
The American Dental Association is so much more.
For starters, did you know that the ADA is the oldest and largest dental society in the world? It’s true. The first meeting of the ADA took place on Aug. 3, 1859, two years before the start of the Civil War and only 83 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. And since that day, the ADA has expanded to include more than 156,000 dentists from every state and Puerto Rico and increased its outreach to impact not just those who care for teeth, but also the patients and their families.
