New Tools for Health Professionals and Parents
The Campaign for Dental Health (CDH) is pleased to share five new fluoride resources for health professionals and fluoride advocates! In collaboration with the National Network for Oral Health Access (NNOHA), we have developed three guides for health professionals and two companion handouts to give to patients, parents, and caregivers.
