Dental equipment standards are becoming more sophisticated as technology and dentistry become intertwined.  If this is an important area for your business, you’ll also want to take a look at the ANSI/ADA standards.  The American Dental Association (ADA) has  been accredited by ANSI (the American National Standards Institute) to develop U.S. standards for dentistry.  The ADA also participates as the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) in the ISO committee for dentistry standards.
