Prescription of Dietary Fluoride Supplements for Caries Prevention Clinical Practice Guideline (2010)

The recommendations were developed by an expert panel convened by the American Dental Association (ADA) Council on Scientific Affairs (CSA). The panel addressed the following questions: when and for whom should fluoride supplements be prescribed, and what should be the recommended dosage schedule for dietary fluoride supplements?

The panel concluded that dietary fluoride supplements should be prescribed only for children who are at risk of developing caries and whose primary source of drinking water is deficient in fluoride.
