Survival of Silver Diamine Fluoride Among Patients Treated in Community Dental Clinics

Dr. Eric Tranby
DentaQuest Partnership for Oral Health Advancement, Massachusetts

In a recent study published in BMC Oral Health, a group of researchers documented the survival outcomes of Silver Diamine Fluoride applications in real world delivery for the first time. Their findings were significant.

In this informative discussion, Chiraz Guessaier, Manager CDA Oasis, speaks to Dr. Eric Tranby, corresponding author of the study and a member of the Analytics and Evaluation team at the DentaQuest Partnership for Oral Health Advancement.

“In my mind the evidence is in – it works. It is very inexpensive, minimally invasive, portable, scalable, and appropriate for use in community settings.”

Dr. Tranby presents convincing evidence on the effectiveness of SDF in the community setting without generating aerosols. He highlights the impact the data may have on clinical practice and care outcomes for patients, and points to major cost savings for payers.
