Sealants are still the most underused preventive tool in dentistry. There are many reasons for the hesitation, including material choices, technique sensitivity and skittishness on the part of the clinician.
Parents of patients also hesitate because some sealant materials produce Bisphenols thought to contribute to the overall estrogen profile of children, including growing boys. We'll discuss all these topics with Dr. Cannon.

Dr. Mark Cannon was the Co-chair of the Research Presentations at the International Association of Pediatric Dentistry Meeting in Athens, Greece. In addition, he was honored to be the first Dentist to ever present at the Probiotic Symposium. Cannon is only one of just two pediatric dentists that are also Fellows of the Academy of Dental Materials. Because of his international reputation and unique background in biomaterials he was recently appointed as an Editor of the Journal of Clinical Pediatric Dentistry.
