Aalba Dent has been a proud participant in the American Dental Association's (ADA) voluntary Seal of Acceptance Program for the past thirty years. Our relationship with the ADA dates back to the late 1970's with the ADA's Acceptance of the VeraBond product as the first base metal, nickel-chrome alloy, for the use in the fabrication of metal-ceramic restorations.

Our participation continued with the program through the 1980's with the ADA's Acceptance of our NPG casting alloy which was the first yellow-gold colored, non-precious alloy, for crown and bridge applications. NPG was later followed by the ADA's Acceptance of NPG+2, VeraBond V, Vera PDI, Vera PDN, and the Vera PDS alloys.

In 2005, the ADA elected to phase out the Seal of Acceptance program for professional products and focus on a product evaluation newsletter (The Review) for ADA members. The Review launched in July 2006 and progressed from the ADA's Seal Program.

The official end of the ADA's Seal of Acceptance Program for professional products came on December 31, 2007. It is with great regret that we now see this Seal Program conclude for professional products. It has served the dental industry for many decades and elevated the dental community's awareness of product standards and quality.
