The primary objectives of the ADA are:
- to encourage the improvement of the oral and general health of the public and to advance and promote the ethics, art and science of dentistry, and
- to support members of the Association in enhancing their ability to provide safe, high quality professional oral health care.
Each year the ADA highlights a different oral health issue through Dental Health Week. As well as covering the essential information about how to care for your teeth, they highlight an area that many people may not be familiar with.
