Figure. Univariate sensitivity analysis of the variation in model parameter estimates on net savings in dental care costs resulting from community water fluoridation programs (CWFPs) in 61 water systems in Colorado. Model inputs were varied by ±15% from the baseline value to assess parameter estimates with the greatest impact on the variation in CWFP net savings.
