Santa Clara County Dental Society releases a great SDF summary in The Cutting Edge

Dr. Eleni Ellenikiotis has written a great summary of the current information on Silver Diamine Fluoride and published it in the Santa Clara County Dental Society publication.  The  article can be seen here .  Be sure to visit the  Santa Clara County Society page here as well.

The CDA Journal released the second of two Silver Diamine Fluoride issues

The California Dental Association Journal that published the UCSF protocols for Silver Diamine Fluoride in 2016 has released the second of two issues packed with SDF information.    Take a look here to see the full text.

Early adopters...

Those offices who initially purchased Advantage Arrest SDF from us may want to review the bottles you have on hand.  It's fast approaching 3 years since our launch which means those first bottles in the market are close to expiration.  Now is the time to re-order, and perhaps try our new Unit-Dose Advantage Arrest package for extra asepsis and convenience.

SDF research continues to expand - and you can help

Interested in a non-staining SDF, and/or restorative materials that contain and release SDF?  Dr. Jeremy Horst and his research partner Dr. Jong Seto are continuing to work on Silver Diamine Fluoride and its expanded uses.  However, much of their work requires funding to continue.  Please visit their  gofundme site  and if possible donate to help support their work and expand the knowledge base on this evolving chemistry.

SDF symposium with clinical experts

If you're interested in learning more about SDF from the clinical experts, there's a symposium at McGill University in Montreal on May 5, 2018 that you should attend.  Some of the greatest SDF minds will be present including Dr. Graham Craig, Dr. Jeanette MacLean, Dr. Ali Attaie, Dr. Nabil Ouatik and Dr. Hemaseh Nasseh.

You asked for it; the AAPD responded

We've received countless requests for patient literature on Silver Diamine Fluoride, it's use and what patients can expect if they choose it as a treatment.  The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry has created a fantastic patient brochure that meets this need.  You can  view it here , and contact the AAPD for reprints!

Back In Black - supporting access to care

G.V. Black and various others wrote about the use of silver materials in dentistry to treat disease over a century ago.  We're going back to these roots and at the same time supporting access to care charities.  Purchase a Back In Black T-Shirt and all proceeds will go toward a charity dedicated to improve access to care (AAPD Healthy Smiles Healthy Children & Children's Dental Health Project).   

Staff meetings & webinars with CE

We can provide AGD continuing education hours and information on the latest products (even if they aren’t Elevate Oral Care’s). We can also provide details on the latest preventive techniques and practices such as CaMBRA.  If we don’t have a Preventive Care Consultant in your area, we’ll conduct a webinar and send samples beforehand so you can experience them as they are discussed.  Either call us at 877-866-9113 or click here to schedule a staff meeting .
