Fluoride Action Network

OUR OPINION: Water services deserve a hand for flouride [sic] levels

News that the state of Alabama has hon­ored several water providers in both Elmore and Autauga areas for proper fluoridization should be cause for celebra­tion.

Proper fluoride levels go a long way to­wards ensuring proper dental health. It is es­pecially important given that some families struggle to provide dental care for their chil­dren as is.

Alabama doesn’t often get a pat on the back when issues of healthcare are con­cerned. The stigma that accompanies many Southern states won’t disappear unless word of these successes gets out.

Congratulations, and thanks to our local water providers.
