Our physicians stay abreast of the latest studies regarding flouride supplements.  As a precautionary measure, our physicians prescribe oral fluoride supplementation starting at age 6 months for children whose water supply is deficient in fluoride.  We also recommend the application of a fluoride varnish to the primary teeth of all infants and children starting at the age of primary tooth eruption.  If you have additional questions regarding flouride supplements, please don't hesitate to ask them on your next vist.
