Increasing Acceptance of Dental Varnishing

Northeast Minnesota coalition of tribes and counties

The rural agencies and tribe in this project are focusing on overcoming the barriers that occur when public health nurses and dieticians add fluoride varnish applications to their practice with clients at WIC clinics.
