Community Water Fluoridation: Why It Matters to the Health of Iowans   

Community water fluoridation has been a safe and healthy way to effectively prevent tooth decay for over 65 years.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognized water fluoridation as one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century.

Why does community water fluoridation matter to our oral health?

Why are some communities considering rolling-back this great achievement?

This webinar addressed the national and Iowa history of adding fluoride to public water systems; the positive outcomes from community water fluoridation programs; current action occurring within public water systems in Iowa; and the need for continued tooth decay prevention programs for all ages.
