Free Webinar on Patient Education: Educating About Fluoride

A key ingredient to good oral health is fluoride.

Learn more about fluoride and how to talk to your patients about its importance.

The Arcora Foundation in partnership the WDHA, and the WSDA is offering a free, online course – on Thursday, May 14, from 12-1 to help anyone who talks with patients about their oral health.
