ALL YORKTOWN DENTISTS, HYGIENISTS & PEDIATRICIANS:
Please come to the Town Board Meeting Next Tuesday evening 1/22 to voice your support for the continuation of fluoridation in your town's drinking water. We all know that the addition of fluoride to the town water is not "merely to reduce cavities and dental decay" but to ensure a lifetime of good oral health for residents in our community, both children & adults. Dental caries is an infectious disease that we want to prevent in our community and the addition of fluoride in your water supply is the answer to a healthy mouth. Good oral health is such an integral part of one's general overall health and well being.
So all dentists, hygienists and pediatricians please come to support the continuation of water fluoridation in the community where you live or practice in the best interest of your family and patients. Your evidence based testimonials of the excellent oral health of your family and patients, which you can attribute to water fluoridation, is crucial in the presentation to the Town Board and your neighbors who have been unsure or mislead regarding the beneficial effects of water fluoridation in a community.
I also highly recommend viewing the websites suggested by Long Time Yorktowner for accurate scientific information and facts. Our obligation to our patients, community residents and families is to ensure continued good oral health with the continuation of fluoridation in Yorktown's water supply. View Comment
