Communities benefit from Water Fluoridation

Water Fluoridation is safe, effective, and saves communities money.

On average, communities with water fluoridation experience:

  • 25% fewer cavities than communities without water fluoridation leading to:
    • Less pain
    • Less fillings and teeth pulled
    • Less missed days of school and work
  • A return of $20 for every $1 invested
    • Less expensive dental treatments needed
    • Saves communities and families money

Water fluoridation improves oral health and reaches everyone in the community.
