Fluoride Level In Drinking Water
News of water fluoridation levels exploded in the media early in 2011 with a US Department of Health and Human Services announcement of a proposed change of the recommended fluoridation target level. The flurry was short lived, but left us with the need to prepare for the eventuality of revising our fluoridation requirement to reflect the national expert guidance. The Illinois Department of Public Health is addressing the changes. This session will provide the background to the recommendation and how it has impacted the state fluoridation mandate here in Illinois.
