This training manual provides information on how to assess the oral health of infants and young children at well-child examinations to better enable health professionals to identify infants and young children at risk for early childhood caries. The manual also provides information on how to implement the Smiles for Ohio Fluoride Varnish Program to apply fluoride varnish to the teeth of children at high risk of tooth decay. The manual includes presentation slides, information on making the program work in practice, supply information, information about Medicaid reimbursement, a selection of fluoride-varnish literature, information about referral, a list of additional resources, and handouts and anticipatory guidance. A CD-ROM in the back of the manual contains the manual contents in .pdf format, as well as video clips and the Fluoride Varnish Reference Guide. A DVD containing a narrated video of the slide presentation and a print copy of Bright Futures in Practice: Oral Health–Pocket Guide are also provided.
