Dentist Attitudes Towards the ADA (video)

Dentist attitudes toward the ADADentist opinions about the American Dental Association span the gamut.

In this survey, 48% of dentist respondents said the ADA is an accurate representation of dentists, while 52% feel the ADA is a tool for specialists to maintain the status quo.

“Apparently, from this sedation dentistry debacle the ADA has no problem limiting ‘Access to Care,’ which I actually thought they cared about. I say we have fools for representatives,” scoffed one dentist. Agreed another, “They are trying to limit our ability to perform oral conscious sedation, and I think that is a tragedy for our patients!”

One dentist offered this straightforward advice: “ADA should be marketing dentistry like the Milk Foundation does the ‘Got Milk’ campaign. Couldn’t tell you a thing that they do that is positive for dentists.”

    I think the ADA leadership is much too secretive. Common members have no place to get answers to difficult questions.

  • I agree that the welfare of the patients must be included in the debate.

  • Gerald Levin

    I’ll try to keep this brief. The ADA is a worthless organization that I quit years ago as they could care less about national reciprocity. Since I’m heavily involved in oral sedation, their involvement (or should I say their interference) makes me like them even less.

    And to that specialist that said “we are all dentists”, I laughed till I cried. Try calling an oral surgeon a dentist and you will be corrected that they are NOT a dentist but a SURGEON. I bet that is true of the majority of specialists.
