Science Friday: Fluoride Being Added Back in City Water

Science Friday: Fluoride Being Added Back in City WaterThe City Council of Pinellas Park Florida has unanimously agreed that fluoride should be added back to the city water.

Dentists in the community supported adding fluoride in the public water supply, supporting the ADHA position that “fluoride is an effective, safe, and inexpensive way to prevent tooth decay.”

Dr. Dick Tomlin, a dentist in Pinellas Park for 42 years, said fluoride accounted for a “direct improvement” in his patients’ teeth. reports that dentist Tomlin was quoted as saying, “I have seen a lot of changes in over three generations of patients. There’s no question in our minds — we have seen a dramatic decrease in the decay in the kids we see. That’s all we’re after.”

TBN states that the fluoride mixture to be added to the water would be kept in bulk storage tanks outside the city’s two pump station. The city plans to maintain fluoride levels in the city water at 0.7 parts per million. Once new storage tanks and other equipment are installed, annual costs would work out to be approximately $1.40 per resident.
