Get the scoop on ADA-developed sealant guidelines

February 24, 2017 Dentists can hear directly from an author of ADA-developed sealant guidelines.

A live online event hosted by the ADA and recorded Feb. 22 that featured a guideline co-author, Dr. Margherita Fontana, is available online to watch here.

Dr. Fontana, a professor in the department of cariology, restorative sciences and endodontics at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, spoke with Dr. Suhail Mohiuddin, owner and general dentist of a Chicago-based office, Dentologie, about the guideline.

The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs convened a panel of experts who, in collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, developed an evidence-based systematic review and clinical practice guideline for the use of pit-and-fissure sealants. In 2016, the guideline and its accompanying systematic review were published in The Journal of the American Dental Association.
