Colgate Caries Control Program

The Colgate Caries Control Program at The University of Adelaide features a range of resources for dental service providers.

Program materials

Practice information sheets

These resources for practitioners present a brief summary of issues related to the examination, diagnosis, recording, prevention and simple management of dental decay.


Clinically focused newsletters present case challenges in a brief case report format. Also included are program updates, reviews of the latest research findings and discussion on issues raised by participants.

Patient pamphlets

A series of educational pamphlets are included to aid service providers in communicating the nature of dental decay to patients. The pamphlets are highly detailed and deal with difficult issues e.g. why patients may have to come back to see the dentist more frequently than previously and why just filling the teeth is not the answer to dental decay.
