The article discusses the highlights of a consensus conference on the appropriate use of fluoride supplements for preventing dental caries in Canadian children held in Toronto, Ontario in November 1997. At a conference in April 1992, the Canadian Dental Association (CDA) advised against providing fluoride tablets to babies and toddlers due to higher risk of dental fluorosis. The scientific presenters were charged with the development of suitable fluoride supplement recommendations based on the current scientific information.
