This is Part 2 of 4 in the 75th Anniversary of Community Water Fluoridation ADA Webinar Series from the ADA Council on Advocacy for Access and Prevention's National Fluoridation Advisory Committee

Recorded on July 14, 2020

Overview
Over the 75 years of community water fluoridation, the "climate" of advocacy has changed. Through social media messaging, blog posts, and twitter - we want our community leaders to be aware of the different ways to connect with their community and promote cavity prevention through optimally fluoridated water. This session will offer a deep dive from different perspectives on how they have promoted community water fluoridation through a base of evidence and a platform that meets the community where they are.

Speakers
Dr. Lorena Espinoza, Associate Director of Science, CDC Oral Health Program
Dr. Josefine Wolfe, Chair of the APHA Oral Health Section
Mr. Kip Duchon, water fluoridation engineer and advocate
Dr. Charlotte Lewis, Pediatrician and fluoridation advocate

After this presentation, attendees will be able to:
• Explain the inequities due to lack of access to community water fluoridation
• Identify the health disparities in regard to dental caries in relation to community water fluoridation
• Recognize why community water fluoridation promotes safe and healthy drinking water across communities
