Doctors and Dentists are Parents Too – And They Support Community Water Fluoridation


Posted & filed under Campaign for Dental Health News, Partners in Fluoride, What the Experts Say about Fluoride.

Many people assume their community has fluoridated tap water, and, confident in the knowledge that it is safe and effective, are surprised to learn that the practice is sometimes called into question. Others have no opinion on community water fluoridation (CWF) until they go online and encounter the misinformation and anti-fluoride websites that are so ubiquitous. But, frankly, most people don’t think about CWF at all, leaving advocates with an enormous challenge: how to get people to value and support something they may already have.

The Campaign for Dental Health is pleased to provide supporters of community water fluoridation with seven new shareable images. These are designed to place CWF at the center of values that are shared by communities and individuals alike: pride of place, doing what’s best for children, and maintaining healthy practices that benefit everyone.

These shareable images draw on our trust in doctors and dentists to demonstrate that – as parents, too – they support the safety and effectiveness of community water fluoridation, a value we think will resonate with self-directed young parents. And we tap into the American sense of progress and pride to inspire a desire to provide and protect high public health standards.

We invite you to click on the thumbnails below, save them, and share the images on your website or social media page. We also encourage you visit the Campaign for Dental Health’s Share page to find more great communication tools!
