Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Intervention Guide: When Sugar is NOT so Sweet

"When Sugar is Not So Sweet" is a brief guide that includes simple visuals and messages dental providers can use to talk with patients about reducing and eliminating sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption to reduce dental decay and other associated chronic diseases. The guide also helps patients come up with a plan to help reduce and/ or eliminate SSB consumption.

Originally developed by the State of Alaska, and with permission, has been revised by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), the Office of Oral Health (OOH) to meet California needs.
