Fluoride for Smiles

Drinking water with fluoride adds a layer of protection against tooth decay, and the CDC says it complements the fluoride in toothpaste. Unfortunately, many of your patients are unaware of fluoride’s benefits. Dental and medical professionals top the list of trusted sources of health information. Brief conversations with your patients can raise their awareness and educate them about the importance of fluoridated water for everyone in the community.
