As the American Dental Assistants Association is the oldest professional organization for dental assistants in the country, we are dedicated to promoting the dental assisting profession in matters of education, legislation, credentialing, and professional activities which enhance the delivery of quality dental health care to the public.  One of the ways the ADAA promotes the profession is by collaborating with other organizations on research.  Below is some of the research the ADAA has assisted in, as well as research and guidelines for dental assistants in general.
