A recent Delta Dental of Washington blog post tackles the topic of staying hydrated in the summer heat mobile dental unit. The blog post reinforces the benefits of adequate hydration and drinking tap water, mentioning that it is sugar-free, affordable, and contains fluoride. “It’s true that nearly all naturally occurring water contains some level of fluoride, but in many cities water is fluoridated to the optimal level in order to fight tooth decay. Choosing tap water in place of bottled water will not only help save the environment (goodbye, plastic!), but it will also give your teeth decay-fighting superpowers.” For more information about the benefits of fluoride and answers to common questions, check out the Common Questions about Fluoride: A Resource for Parents and Caregivers tool. Boyne City, Michigan Group Rallies to Reinstate Fluoridation A group of citizens in Boyne City, Michigan has come together to form the Citizens United for Dental Health. The group has gathered signatures and has presented a valid petition seeking to enact an ordinance requiring the city to add fluoride to its water supply. The Boyne City City Commission voted unanimously on August 12 to put the ordinance on the November general election ballot. Boyne City officials estimate the annual cost of community water fluoridation to be about $1 per person per year. Harvard-Kennedy Research Analysis Helps Counter Misinformation The Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at the Harvard-Kennedy School has developed an excellent resource for journalists and anyone seeking to understand the evidence behind the debate about the safety and effectiveness of fluoride. Citing a recently published article that falsely implicates fluoride among neurotoxins in children, this research review cautions readers – especially those covering the topic for journalistic outlets – to review the best available research and to avoid false balance – “he said, she said” characterizations – when representing objections to the ‘definitive’ science in support of fluoride and community water fluoridation dental lab supplies australia. Health Professionals Warn Washington Community to Not Be Foolish Two health professionals in Fircrest, Washington have written an op-ed column to caution the community about the consequences of discontinuing water fluoridation in their community. Dr Jeffrey Camm, a pediatric dentist with more than 35 years of experience, and Dr Terry Torgenrud, a retired pediatrician who practiced for 40 years, are both residents of the community and suggest that the city council should consider that: “According to the American Dental Association, community water fluoridation reduces cavities by 25 percent. Studies estimate that every dollar invested in fluoridation saves $38 in future dental bills dental supplies. If communities in the area weren’t fluoridated, the number of children needing care, and the cost of that care, would be far greater.”
