Piloting the Use of Silver Diamine Fluoride in Long-Term Care

Project Type: 

“This grant from the DTA Foundation will allow Apple Tree to implement the use of Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF), a minimally invasive, cost-effective disease management strategy to slow the progression of caries, for long-term care residents,” said Apple Tree Dental Policy Director Deborah Jacobi. “Apple Tree believes that the lessons learned in this pilot project will assist not only Apple Tree Dental, but also others who provide dental services to long-term care residents and to other vulnerable populations of all ages.”
