Protect your child's teeth with free fluoride varnish. Start your child's visits early between 12 and 35 months (1 and 2 years) old.
Fluoride varnish helps protect your child's teeth from tooth decay (cavities). It slows down decay already started.
Your child needs four fluoride varnish visits, six months apart, to best protect their teeth. Fluoride varnish is painted on your child's teeth. It takes less than one minute to apply. You can hold your child during the visit.
You can also ask any questions you may have about protecting your child's teeth.
If your child is diagnosed with asthma by a doctor, bring their quick reliever medication to the appointment. If your child feels anxious with dental visits it may trigger asthma symptoms.
This provincial prevention service is available across Alberta.
