“Traditionally, we provide fluoride varnish to children under the age of 18 as part of caries management but what about the adult population? Research shows that older people are a caries-active group, experiencing new disease at a rate which is at least as great as that of adolescents. Why aren't more adults being offered treatment and when they are offered treatment, why aren’t more accepting it? Join me to hear new ways of educating and presenting the facts to ensure your adult population is part of your caries management program.” — Donna Brogan RDH, BS
