Specific GOAL of the
Canada-US Chapter

Within 5 years of the Chapter launch, we will facilitate inter-professional collaboration for caries prevention and management, for example by increasing the number of medical offices that routinely recommend brushing a child’s teeth with fluoridated toothpaste, a healthy diet and the use of fluoride varnish.

The Canada-US ACFF Chapter, as well as the other 24 ACFF Chapters, support the goals of the Global Alliance.
