Fluoride and dental sealants can almost eliminate tooth decay in permanent teeth. Fluoride tablets alone can prevent 35% of tooth decay. We participate in a Multnomah County Health Department sponsored daily Fluoride Tablet Program for children 3 and older.
We also brush teeth after lunch daily. The fluoride program is completely optional and totally free of charge to all of our families. We live in a community with no fluoride in the drinking water; it is recommended that your children take fluoride.
If you are giving your child fluoride tablets or fluoride vitamins at home, there is NO NEED to stop and change to our program. In fact daily home use is better as it is not interrupted by holidays and vacations. If your child is NOT taking fluoride tablets at home, our program is a good way to get started.
Here at Discovery Gardens it is our goal to give your children all of the best supports in achieving a healthy lifestyle. We want to aid you in everyway possible. If you have any questions, you may call our Program Director at 971-400-8880, or call the Multnomah County Oregon School/Community Dental Health program directly at 503-988-3905.
