Community water fluoridation is supported by a broad consensus in the dental, medical, and scientific communities. In recognition of its benefits, it was recognized as #9 on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s list of the 10 greatest public health innovations of the 20th century. That’s all the more reason for Bennington to join 57% of Vermonters in applying community water fluoridation to boost dental health.

Shortly, we will update this page with more comprehensive resources to respond to commonly asked questions about community water fluoridation. For the time being, we invite you warmly to discuss community water fluoridation with the American Dental Association — and with your dentist in Bennington.
