Advertising Policy

As Authority Dental, our goal is to create trustworthy, current, and actionable dental health content. The process of creating articles comprises multiple stages and is based on close cooperation with professionals.

To help secure the resources needed to make high-quality texts, we feature advertising from reputable brands on our website while maintaining editorial autonomy. Partners have no influence over and cannot interfere with the content of the published text.

We highly value the trust you place in us. Therefore, when considering advertisements on Authority Dental, we remain transparent and operate on the basis of the 3 principles described below.

All advertisements must be clearly marked

We make sure that any user of the website is aware of which content is of an advertising nature. The distinction is always explicit and distinct from any other text. We make use of formatting in the form of borders and other editorial elements to make this clear. We disclose this type of material by annotations such as “ad”, “advertisement”, or “sponsored”.

Ads must not interfere with user experience

Our ultimate goal is to provide valuable dental information to everyone. Therefore, we reserve the right to determine the most suitable placement of ads on Authority Dental. Sponsored content is limited, located, and formatted in a way that does not disturb the comfort of reading.

The ads must be of suitable quality

All sponsored content must clearly state who the advertiser is. Any ad that is factually inaccurate or in poor taste is rejected. Authority Dental will not contribute to spreading publicity of any harmful, illegal, or in any other way objectionable products or services.

No ad on Authority Dental will contain any material that is fraudulent or deceptive, or content that is considered discriminatory. Anything that is an attack on an idividual or group due to their gender, age, race, nationality, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or disability will be rejected. Sponsored content must not reference alcohol, firearms, ammunition, fireworks, gambling, pornograpy, tobacco, or the simulation of news or an emergency.

Authority Dental reserves the right to reject, discontinue, or remove any ads at any time and for any reason. Prompt notice will make its way to the advertiser upon any such incidents. The partner will also be made aware of the basis for rejection, concellation, or removal of an ad.
