Question
What is exact recommended flouride doses according to age!!!

Answer
I did an  search and found the following recommendations on the links below

http://www.aapd.org/media/Policies_Guidelines/G_fluoridetherapy.pdf

http://www.uspharmacist.com/content/d/featured%20articles/c/10229/

On the pages they each show a table with age appropriate dosages. Just copy and paste  each of these link into your browser.

To summarize they say:

6 months-3 years:.25 mg/day
3-6 years: .5 mg/day
6-16 years  1 mg/day
