Oklahoma’s FLUORIDATION LAW:

  • The State of Oklahoma does not mandate fluoridation.  Local governments control fluoridation policy in OK.  City councils can begin or discontinue fluoridation at their discretion, or by a referendum vote.  Each community’s fluoridation ordinance is unique.  To learn more about these fluoridation ordinances, click here.
