In the largest US city with no fluoride in its water, I am in some ways ashamed that we don’t provide a safe and effective way of preventing dental decay for our inhabitants. As a medical student, I have seen many patients whose oral health suffers due to lack of this simple and inexpensive public health intervention.Short of universal healthcare for all Oregonians that would guarantee access to treatments for medical, mental, and dental health, we can start to make a real difference this Spring by voting for this proven effective method of preventing dental decay.
