An experienced orthodontist, William Fay, DDS, owns and operates two orthodontic offices in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he helps patients attain healthy, attractive smiles. William Fay, DDS, also monitors dental industry best practices and trends as a member of the American Dental Association (ADA).
In a recent press release, the ADA announced that seven of the eight cities that voted on water fluoridation initiatives on November ballots chose to maintain or re-establish fluoridation practices. The ADA noted that voters from the seven cities that approved fluoridation did so with overwhelming voter support. In a Sonoma County, California, community, nearly 70 percent of voters elected to retain the water fluoridation practices that have been in place since 1952.
The ADA celebrated the latest fluoridation approvals and expressed optimism for accomplishing the Action for Dental Health 2020 objective of delivering fluoridated water to 80 percent of the American population. The ADA noted that in the meantime it will continue to support public awareness campaigns about the benefits of water fluoridation.
