Two errors occurred in this article by Ruth Holt and colleagues (24 June, pp 1717-9). First, the picture of tooth erosion (bottom of p 1717) is upside down. Second, in the table of recommended fluoride dietary supplementation for caries prophylaxis in high risk children (p 1718) the supplementation for children aged >6 years old in areas with water fluoride levels <0.3 ppm should have read 1 mg/day (not 1 g/day).
