PDA Supports Statewide Mandate for Community Water Fluoridation

PDA supports legislation or any public health initiative that requires all public water supply systems operating in Pennsylvania to fluoridate at optimal levels recommended by the American Dental Association, the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.

More than 50 years of scientific study overwhelmingly proves the safety and efficacy of water fluoridation. Pennsylvania lawmakers can ensure that children are able to access this important preventative measure without being dependent on a parent or guardian to schedule dental appointments.
