Aug. 4, 2006
Association provides reference guides for use by dental professionals.

In May 2006, the American Dental Association released its new Evidence-based Clinical Recommendations for Professionally–Applied Topical Fluoride and Professionally Applied Topical Fluoride (Executive Summary).

The Evidence-based clinical recommendations are developed through evaluation of the collective body of evidence on a particular topic to provide practical applications of scientific information that can assist dentists in clinical decision-making.

This is a great resource for clinical practices and it's top 3 evidence-based summaries:

• Fluoride Varnish comes out a winner

• 4-minute treatment time with trays is still the gold standard

• Difficulty substantiating between APF and NaF
