After a number of years of discussion and planning, Sheridan implemented its fluoridation program on January 9, 2015. Community water fluoridation is a public health strategy that has been proven to be safe and effective at preventing tooth decay. According to The Sheridan Press, “the process to add fluoride to Sheridan’s water supply was initiated in December 2010 when City Council passed a resolution directing water treatment staff to monitor fluoride levels and the public works department to incorporate fluoridation equipment into its current and future budgets. That resolution was brought about when more than 230 health and dental professionals submitted a petition requesting water fluoridation to help with widespread dental decay being seen by health and dental professionals.” Arkansas Communities to Begin Adding Fluoride to Water The city of Greenwood, Arkansas is set to begin fluoridating the community’s water supply that serves nearly 9,000 residents. The city will utilize a $124,000 grant from the Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation to support this public health practice that is mandated by the state for communities 5,000 or more residents. In addition, the city of Fort Smith, Arkansas will begin to fluoridate their two water treatment plants in early 2016 through a $1.8 million grant from the Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation implant machine. Fort Smith is currently the largest city in Arkansas that does not fluoridate its water supply. Community water fluoridation is a public health strategy that has been proven to be safe and effective at preventing tooth decay. Dallas City Council Approves Fluoridation Contract The Dallas City Council voted to on January 28, 2015 to approve a $1 million contract to fluoridate Dallas’ water supply for the next three years dental file. The vote shows the city’s commitment to ensuring that the citizens of Dallas and the one and a quarter million people served continue to receive the benefits of community water fluoridation—a low-cost public health strategy that has been proven to be safe and effective at preventing tooth decay. turbine air compressor
