Flouride

Dear Parent or Guardian,

As you may know, our school has participated in a fluoride mouthrinse program, offered by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), for a number of years. We’ve recently been notified by the ODH that this program will be discontinued at the end of the 2019-20 school year. The lone U.S. manufacturer will no longer be making the fluoride packets used for the program. 

If your child participated in this program, we encourage you to let your dentist know that they will not be rinsing with fluoride at school and discuss other sources of fluoride that might be beneficial, including fluoride varnish. 

Please also review these other sources of information about fluoride, dental sealants, and other oral health tips at https://www.mouthhealthy.org/en/babies-and-kids. Of special interest are:

  • A Mom's Guide to Fluoride

  • All About Sealants

If you have any questions, please contact Shannon Cole, ODH School-based Oral Health Program Coordinator at: 614-728-2302 or via email at [email protected]
