The American Dental Association (ADA) has announced the introduction of the ADA Standards E-Catalog that is conveniently available online for dental professionals 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The electronic catalog contains all of the ANSI/ADA Specifications and ADA
Technical Reports for Dental Products and Informatics, along with all ISO
(International Organization for Standardization) dental standards online at
It features standards written by the dental profession for the dental
profession, the Standards E-catalog illustrates the ADA's leadership in
standards for safe and effective oral healthcare. All standards may be
securely purchased and electronically downloaded for instant access or may
be securely purchased in hard copy format.
ANSI/ADA specifications developed by the ADA Standards Committee on Dental Products (SCDP) are approved as American National Standards by ANSI (American National Standards Institute). ISO dental standards are worldwide standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee 106 for Dentistry.
Both of these committees address eight areas of dentistry; restorative
materials and orthodontics, prosthodontic materials, terminology,
instruments, equipment, dental implants, oral hygiene products, and
infection control products.
Technical reports developed by the ADA Standards Committee on Dental
Informatics (SCDI) address such topics as dental practice systems, clinical
peripheral devices and software, electronic data interchange (EDI),
interoperability, computer-based patient record interfaces and security of
systems and data.
