Healthy smiles: oral health and fluoride varnish information for health professionals.

Darwin: Northern Territory Department of Health

The Healthy smiles: oral health and fluoride varnish information for health professionals resource was developed as part of the Northern Territory oral health promotion plan (NTOHPP) which included the integration of oral health into primary health care. This resource is to be used in conjunction with a fluoride varnish training program. It was designed to provide non-oral health professionals with some oral health background information, knowledge about early childhood caries as well as prevention and management. It aims to provide adequate skills for registered nurses and registered Aboriginal Health Workers to apply fluoride varnish in primary health care settings of the NT.
