Community water fluoridation is supported by various groups, including the American Association of Public Health Dentistry, the American Public Health Association, the American Dental Association, and the American Academy of Pediatrics, among others. Additionally, in 1999 the CDC identified community water fluoridation as 1 of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century because of its effectiveness and ability to distribute fluoride equitably and cost-effectively (National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion 1999). Information about the fluoride concentration of communities participating in water fluoridation can be found on the CDC’s (2017) website.
