This article presents information on the American Dental Association Council on Dental Materials, Instruments and Equipment (CDMIE). The association was formalized in 1966 to coordinate and expand dental product standardization and evaluation programs that began in 1928 at the National Bureau of Standards in Washington, D.C. The article lists of the major goals of CDMIE and provides an overview of the Certification Program and Acceptance Program which evaluate dental materials and equipment. The article provides detailed information on the evaluation of endosseous implants by the Council, including physical and biological properties of the implant and clinical testing.
