Meet an author of ADA-developed sealant guidelines

February 17, 2017 Dentists are invited to hear directly from an author of ADA-developed sealant guidelines Feb. 22 during a Facebook Live event.

The online event will feature guideline co-author Dr. Margherita Fontana, a professor in the department of cariology, restorative sciences and endodontics at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. She will be in conversation with Dr. Suhail Mohiuddin, owner and general dentist of a Chicago-based office, Dentologie. Viewers will have the chance to pose questions to the pair by submitting comments on Facebook during the chat.

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

To watch the Facebook Live event, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Central time Feb. 22, log on to Facebook and visit the ADA page at

For those who can't watch it live, the event is expected to be recorded and posted on the ADA's YouTube page at
