Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is a promising agent for both the prevention and arrest of dental caries. Dental hygienists (DHs) are well positioned by training and education to provide preventive services, including application of SDF. This poster examines state-level regulations and dental board opinions related to DHs’ ability to apply SDF, including infographics illustrating state and regional variations. The significant variation in conditions for the application of SDF across states may discourage its integration into practice.

The changing composition of the dental workforce has generated interest in describing differences in practice by dentist’s gender that might affect the availability of oral health services over time.
