Fluoride article for parents

Does anyone have a good reference for an article about fluoride for parents who refuse? We have a dad who no longer wants his children receiving fl. from us and we hope to send him a well-worded article for him to read about the benefits. Thanks!

I’m having a hard time finding one good, concise article regarding fluoride that you can simply print out and give to parents who refuse fluoride. What I would recommend is to look at many articles, pick out what you like from each, then write your own fluoride fact sheet. I’ve done this before with aftercare instructions for SRP patients, it turned out really well because I focused it on the needs of my patients and had the “voice” of our office. Here are a few articles to get you started: http://www.dentistrytoday.com/materials/1474–sp-865704734 http://www.colgate.com/en/us/oc/oral-health/basics/fluoride/article/flouride-treatments-and-supplements http://www.westmississaugadental.com/docs/Fact%20Sheet%20Fluoride.pdf http://www.astdd.org/docs/Sept2007FINALFlvarnishpaper.pdf
