Fluoridated drinking water is... Safe for your health. Effective to prevent cavities. Trusted by dentists, physicians and health professionals. By simply drinking a glass of water. 

Fluoridated community water systems are the best way to ensure that everyone—rich, poor, old and young—benefits from fluoride.

Fluoride in water is the single most effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has proclaimed community water fluoridation one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.

Fluoride is Natural. It is already present in all water sources, even the oceans. 

Water fluoridation is simply the adjustment of fluoride that occurs naturally to a recommended level for keeping teeth healthy and preventing tooth decay.

Fluoride in water is Safe and Effective.

For 70 years, scientific evidence consistently indicates that community water fluoridation is safe and effective.

Fluoride in community water Saves Money. 

The average lifetime cost per person to fluoridate a water supply is less than the cost of one dental filling. For most cities, every $1 invested in water fluoridation saves $38 in dental treatment costs.
