US Surgeon General Officially Endorses Water Fluoridation

US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, M.D. recently officially endorsed community water fluoridation, a practice that has been in the United States for 70 years. The process was originally introduced in 1945 in Grand Rapids, MI, and studies have shown dramatic improvement in oral health in tens of millions of Americans. Community water fluoridation is considered to be "the single most effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay."
