Dental caries continues to be a top-of-mind dental concern, affecting a majority of the US population. Fluoride is a mainstay in prevention, with fluoride varnish products becoming the primary type provided in dental practices. Dental professionals often get “side-tracked” with concerns over patient acceptance of a product utilized in patient care, rather than its efficacy, and often is the case when selecting a fluoride varnish. This CE webinar offers an overview of factors to consider when selecting a fluoride varnish product. Flavor aspects will be presented with a conversation about taste as the current primary determinant for product choice. The benefits of additional ingredients in fluoride varnish will be discussed as well as other characteristics for superior patient benefit. The entire dental team can profit from information concerning fluoride varnish choices for best patient care.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, participants will be able to:
• Explain the process of dental decay and its effects on children’ ability to learn
• Describe sources of fluoride available throughout the US
• List factors for consideration when selecting a fluoride varnish to utilize in the dental practice
• Discuss various characteristics that make a varnish product a superior choice   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
