    Can you offer some tips on how we can implement SDF in a school based sealant program where parental consent is granted prior to screening the children at school? Educating the parent re:SDF appearance is not feasible.

  4. Mrs. Faith McDonald-Bicknell says:

    Thank you for covering this vital topic since caries risk has increased significantly due to the increased sugar intake in the child population that I serve. I noticed that in the treatment plan written by my supervisor, extraction is by far the preferred treatment for these carious teeth, many of which in my opinion could be restored and remain in the patient’s mouth as space maintainers especially in the posterior areas. Kindly share on the available options now being used to at least try to prevent orthodontic problems for the early childhood population. Thanks.

  6. Dr. Abbas Naqvi says:

  7. Ms. cynthia hammack says:

    As a parent with school aged children, it seems that it is common place for educators and coaches to use candy or sugar filled treats as incentives and/or prizes for a job well done. It has become a source of frustration and as a parent have had to ask instructors and teachers to find alternatives for my children- sometimes to no avail. Is there an initiative or federal guideline for schools or a particular study which we can point to in order to help direct our teachers and coaches without offending their good intentions? Thank you!
