Mother“I am proud of my family’s healthy lifestyle and yet my children have needed a lot of dental work. I grew up in a fluoridated city and never had this kind of dental decay. All kids need the benefits of fluoridation, no matter where they live.”

“Kids with poor dental health miss more school, can be more distracted and can even have speech problems. As a teacher, I see first-hand how dental health can affect a child’s ability to learn and succeed. Our children deserve every health protection available.”

“As a doctor, I support community fluoridation because I know that good dental health is connected to overall health. In fact, children with dental disease are more likely to face other serious health problems. In my mind, fluoridation is a no-brainer for the better health of our community.”
