Understanding Fluoride Varnish

Presented by Cathryn Carboon


CPD: 1 CPD Hour


Join us for a 1-hour online webinar discussing fluoride varnish. This will cover safety, efficacy, guidelines and more. Fluoride varnish was developed in Germany in 1964 and since then it has been used around the world as a gold standard in professionally applied fluoride treatments for caries prevention in all age groups.

The evidence base for the safety and efficacy of fluoride varnish is compelling and professionally applied 5% sodium fluoride varnish remains one of the cornerstones of preventive dentistry.
