CDHNS Client Informational Brochures
The CDHNS partnered with Leslie Kenwell, RDH, in creating two brochures – one on silver diamine fluoride (SDF) and the other on Oral Health for your Infant. These brochures will be useful educational tools for your clients.
The CDHNS has a limited number of printed copies available for dental hygienists. If you are interested in obtaining some brochures to distribute to clients in your practice setting, please submit your request to the CDHNS via email to Kelly Hurlburt @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
