Three of the leading figures of the health community at Harvard University have written a letter expressing their support for community water fluoridation. Dr Jeffrey S. Flier, dean of Harvard Medical School, Dr Bruce Donoff, dean of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and Julio Frenh, dean of the Harvard School of Public Health and International Development, co-wrote the letter to an associate professor at the dental school.
