ADA’s Fluoride in Water Campaign

As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Christopher C. Babcook is a member of the Kentucky Dental Association, and Kentucky Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Working in wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, and oral pathology, Christopher C. Babcook, MMD is also a member of the American Dental Association.

One of the programs of the American Dental Association is the Fluoride in Water program which seeks to provide information to the public about the efficacy and safety of fluoride. A naturally occurring substance, fluoride is added to water, as it can decrease the number of cavities in communities by around 25 percent. Water fluoridation has been studied for over 70 years and is considered safe by many international organizations such as the American Dental Association, the World Health Organization, and the Center for Disease Control.

As it is predominantly an educational resource for the benefits of Fluoride in Water, the program provides information on studies that were conducted about fluoride, the many benefits it provides, and the ways in which it’s used. There are also clinical guidelines, and fluoridation advocacy.
