ADA Awards Seal of Acceptance to First Powered Interdental Cleaner- March 29, 2017

The Waterpik Water Flosser has become the latest dental product to be awarded the American Dental Association's Seal of Acceptance. 


“This product was shown to reduce plaque and gingivitis in areas between the teeth, often the most difficult areas for patients to effectively clean,” said Dr. John Dmytryk, chair of the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs’ Seal Subcommittee. “By granting the ADA Seal of Acceptance to the Waterpik Water Flosser, consumers for whom these devices are appropriate can be confident that they can be a safe and effective component of their daily oral care when used as directed.”

In order to earn the Seal, WaterPik, Inc. had to demonstrate, through providing scientific data, clinical studies and results of laboratory tests, that it meets ADA requirements for product safety and efficacy in the ADA Seal Program’s Powered Interdental Cleaners category.

The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs awarded the ADA Seal of Acceptance to five product lines of the Waterpik Water Flosser. The Water Flosser product lines that earned the Seal are the Waterpik Aquarius Professional, the Waterpik Aquarius Professional Designer Series, the Waterpik Ultra, the Waterpik Nano and the Waterpik Traveler.
