Every three months Dr. Michelle Henshaw from the Boston University "Henry M. Goldman" School of Dental Medicine visits various preschools in Estelí to apply fluoride varnish on children's teeth and to train local teachers in applying the fluoride varnish.

Once a year Dr. Corinna Culler joins Dr. Michelle Henhaw to evaluate the effect of the fluoride varnish on children's teeth.
