Excerpt
IN spite of the overwhelming evidence that the administration of small quantities of fluoride significantly lowers the incidence of dental caries without risk to health, this simple public health measure has not yet been implemented on the scale it deserves. This is due in part to the often misguided opposition to community fluoridation programmes and in part to uncertainty in choosing among the various alternative methods in places where community water fluoridation is not practicable or is unacceptable.
