Many dental patients are asking serious questions about topical fluoride. While some question its health benefits, others wonder if it is appropriate for their children. You can prepare yourself to answer these questions by tuning in to a Facebook Live event scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Central time on April 18.
Panelists will discuss answers to the top 3 questions patients are asking about fluoride, using an ADA clinical practice guideline on the subject as a reference.
The event will feature Dr. Kevin Donly, member of a 2013 expert panel convened by the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs to develop the guideline.. Dr. Donly will be interviewed by Dr. Melissa Lee Davis, former vice president of the Chicago Dental Society, Northwest Suburban Branch. Viewers can also submit questions for the panelists to answer.
The guideline and accompanying systematic review are available online at http://ebd.ada.org/en/evidence/guidelines/topical-fluoride.
For those unable to join the event live, it will be recorded and available to view on the ADA’s Facebook page at facebook.com/AmericanDentalAssociation or on YouTube at youtube.com/AmericanDentalAssoc.
