Protect your child's teeth with free fluoride varnish. Start your child early at 12 to 35 months (1 and 2 years).

Provides free fluoride varnish applications for eligible children to protect their teeth from tooth decay (cavities).

Your child needs four fluoride varnish visits, six months apart, to best protect their teeth.
