Denver Water to consider discontinuation at July meeting

How can you help?

Join us in submitting letters to Denver Water in support of fluoridation by Monday, July 13, 2015.

Letters do not need to be lengthy or filled with statistics. The most effective correspondence will be based on your personal experience with patients, education and knowledge as a healthcare professional.

  • Have you seen patients from both fluoridated and non-fluoridated communities, and have you noticed a difference?
  • Do you (and your children) consume fluoridated water?
  • Do you believe in facts and science-based studies regarding the benefits of fluoride?

Letters should be addressed to the Denver Board of Water Commissioners and can be mailed to the address above, attn: Matt Wittern.

Join the CDA at the meeting.

While testimony will be limited, we welcome anyone to attend this meeting. Public comment will not be accepted during the meeting, however, supportive presence will undoubtedly help raise awareness among the board members.

Spread the word.

We encourage members to provide information about this meeting to their patients and to inform patients about the benefits of fluoridation.

Community water fluoridation benefits all consumers no matter their socioeconomic background. It reduces costs related to preventable diseases (dental disease is almost 100% preventable). Access to optimally fluoridated water provides the foundation for optimal oral health, which directly affects general health. This is true for our children, our seniors and everyone in between.
