Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is now widely used among paediatric dentists and is transforming community programmes. In 1999, the WHO co-supported the book “Root cause – dentistry in developing countries” in which SDF was strongly advocated as a low-cost solution to managing dental caries.

Hosted on October 10, 2019, this webinar discussed the public health issues of using SDF in community dental programmes. This was part of the #DPHTalks webinar series lead by WFPHA Oral Health Working Group.
