Pediatric dentistry is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association, the premier professional organization representing dentistry in the United States.


Founded in the mid-19th century, the American Dental Association is the oldest dental association in the world. The American Dental Association is based in Chicago and represents more than 150,000 dentists across the United States. In addition, the American Dental Association is affiliated with over 500 local dental societies.


The American Dental Association’s activities include promoting public health and ethical care, advancing scientific research, continuing education, and tackling access to care issues. In addition, the American Dental Association administers an endorsement program. More than 300 products, from toothpaste to chewing gum, have received the ADA Seal of Acceptance, which signifies that the product supports good oral health, and is safe for public use.


The American Dental Association also maintains a philanthropic organization, the ADA Foundation. Through fundraising efforts, the ADA Foundation provides grants that support dental research, access to care, and educational initiatives and programs.


Through its science and research branch, the American Dental Association publishes the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA), which is the most prestigious dental publication in the world. The American Dental Association also maintains two of its own research facilities: the ADAF Research Institute, a multi-purpose facility located at the American Dental Association headquarters in Chicago, Illinois; and the Paffenbarger Research Center, dedicated to dentistry-related materials research. Areas of specialization at the Paffenbarger Research Center include clinical science materials, tissue engineering, restorative materials, and dental therapies.


In addition to providing services for dental practitioners, the American Dental Association offers resources for the general public. The American Dental Association consumer website addresses preventative oral health, provides a dentist locator tool, and maintains separate portals for children and educators. The website also provides information on careers in dentistry.


The dentists at Ray L. Pollock & Associates, D.D.S., P.A. maintain memberships with the American Dental Association (www.ada.org), as well as with the Florida Dental Association (www.floridadental.org) and the Brevard County Dental Society.
