USA - Dentists favour fluoridation - a lot don't

Dentists favor fluoridation
February 16,2016
As a long-standing practicing general dentist in Rutland City, I am very concerned about the misinformation regarding community water fluoridation. There is no doubt oral health disease has increased in communities in which fluoridation was discontinued. It will take some time, but an increase in dental disease will occur.
For 70 years — more than 30 years in Rutland — fluoride has been part of our nation’s strategy for improving public health and lowering health care costs.
Preventing oral health diseases helps to reduce rates of other costly and debilitating diseases like diabetes and heart disease, which are linked to poor oral health. Preventing oral health diseases also helps to save Vermonters money and reduce health care costs overall.
For all these reasons, I urge you to embrace the real science and the need to maintain community water fluoridation in Rutland City. It is a safe, proven and effective means of reducing costly dental diseases and health care costs. The evidence is so clear that all leading health and medical organizations recommend fluoridation. In fact, there is no major, national medical or scientific organization that opposes it.
There is not one single opponent who does what we dentists and dental health care providers do every day and who can provide you and our neighbors with our real experiences and the real scientific facts about fluoride.

Funny I know two dentists who live locally who agree with us and are opposed to fluoridation and feel very strongly it is wrong to to force it on everybody. World wide there are hundreds if not thousands. Many keep quiet afraid of repercussions.
