I’m a Pediatrician, but I’m Also a Mom and I Support Fluoridation
Kelly Curtin-Hallinan is a mom and a pediatrician. What does she do for her daughters? She makes sure they drink water with the right balance of fluoride to help protect their teeth from decay. She knows that community water fluoridation benefits everyone.
The Campaign for Dental Health is pleased to provide supporters of community water fluoridation (CWF) with seven 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.
