IN THE BUSH:
OUTBACK DENTISTRY FOR LAYPERSONS
(ODFL)

ODFL is a dental training program for caring persons who want to help those plagued by dental disease who are unable to access professional dental care.

"Outback" or "Bush" dentistry merely means wherever appropriate medical authorities grant such permission, whether in an Amazon jungle or a neglected city neighborhood in any country.     

Our purpose is to educate our trainees to provide essential oral health education, coupled with simple and effective medically focused (see MMC) page) dental therapy delivered in the most inexpensive way. 

The planned curriculum of this training will consists of motivational interviewing, povidone iodine application (see Self-Care), silver diamine fluoride (or silver nitrate) fluoride varnish and glass ionomer sealants and fillings.

For the latest science and details on these agents, see RD-PART I and RD-PART II. The content will be simplified for ODFL. 

We originally hoped to launch this by Nov. 30, 2022; but preparations are taking longer than we anticipated. We are now shooting for 1/7/2023.
