Fluoride Protection for Toddlers

Provides free fluoride applications for eligible children 12 to 35 months to protect their teeth from cavities.

Children only need to have a few teeth to start getting fluoride. Applications are given 4 times, once every 6 months. For eligibility information visit our website.

At the appointment:

  • The child sits on their parent's lap while staff apply fluoride on the child's teeth using a brush, which takes less than a minute.
  • The child can eat and drink right after the treatment.
  • The fluoride sticks to the teeth and protects them. It slowly wears off when the teeth are brushed.

If the child has asthma, bring his or her asthma reliever medicine to the appointment.
This provincial prevention service is available in all AHS (Alberta Health Services) zones.
