Create a campaign to build proactive public support for water fluoridation in Texas.
Community water fluoridation rates across Texas have declined in recent years, with some water systems dropping the practice with little to no notice to their constituents. Drinking fluoridated water boosts protection from tooth decay by 25% or more beyond brushing with fluoride toothpaste alone. Water with fluoride saves communities and families from potentially costly dental treatment and benefits people of all ages, especially those who cannot visit a dentist regularly.
The Texas Fluoridation Campaign was developed in partnership with the Texas Oral Health Coalition and the Texas Health Institute, with support from the Delta Dental Foundation.
