Consider the following:


  • Evidence-based research shows that the two most effective measures to prevent dental disease in a community are community water fluoridation and school-based sealant programs.
  • In Oregon, only 27% of the population has access to water with optimum fluoride levels, compared to the national average of 72.4%. 
  • Water fluoridation benefits people of all ages, regardless of socio-economic status.
  • Every reputable scientific organization reports that water fluoridation is safe.
  • The one-time cost to consumers for implementation is about $3 - $14 per person.
  • The cost for onging fluoridation is about $1 - $3 per person per year (depending on the complexity of the system and the number of people sharing the cost). 
  • Water fluoridation is the most effective part of a community’s comprehensive dental program.
