CHICAGO, July 10 The following is a statement by Mark J. Feldman, DMD, President, American Dental Association, on the CDC announcement that 70 percent of the U.S. population now receives optimally fluoridated water:



"We welcome this very encouraging news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the increase in the number of Americans receiving optimally fluoridated water. We know from years of experience and scientific study that community water fluoridation benefits everyone. The ADA has long advocated water fluoridation as the single most effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay. Our members are committed working with federal, state and municipal governments to increase even further the number of Americans who benefit from it."



The not-for-profit ADA is the nation's largest dental association, representing more than 156,000 dentist members. The premier source of oral health information, the ADA has advocated for the public's health and promoted the art and science of dentistry since 1859. The ADA's state-of-the-art research facilities develop and test dental products and materials that have advanced the practice of dentistry and made the patient experience more positive. The ADA Seal of Acceptance long has been a valuable and respected guide to consumer dental care products. JADA, a monthly journal, is the ADA's flagship publication and the best-read scientific journal in dentistry. For more information about the ADA, visit the Association's Web site at www.ada.org.
