Fluoride helps strengthen teeth to reduce cavities. It can even repair the early stages of tooth decay before the decay becomes visible.

Fluoride varnish is quick, painless and easily applied by a registered dental hygienist, who will also complete an oral health assessment on each child.

• Aug. 15: from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dr. Bennett’s office in Lakeside
