The Rural Dental Action Group says it will go ahead with a public forum even though Oberon council has ruled out introducing fluoride to the town’s water.
Council this week dismissed a motion proposing fluoridation be investigated and community feedback sought.
Marj Bollinger from the Rural Dental Action Group says it is disappointing news, but she is still optimistic the idea can be pursued.
“Well, I feel quite sure that it’s very possible that things can progress as the community at large have not been consulted,” she said.
“Until that happens and there’s a general consensus from the community, I don’t consider any decision should ever have been made.”
