sensed that scientifically achieved fluoridation could mean sound teeth for multiplied millions our people History has been repeating itself Vaccination which has made smallpox an almost unknown disease not only in America but throughout the civilized world had to combat precisely the same forces of blind ig norance Many of the same wholly irresponsible claims made against vaccination have been revived and used against fluoridation But Im pleased to report the tide does show definite signs of turning At latest count announced earlier this year in connection with the an nual meeting of

dentists that the fluoride content bestowed by nature and the level ad judged precisely right for best effects on the teeth of our youngsters suggest the earnest consideration of a fluoridation program in my community Despite the national recogni tion of our dental health pro gram the reasoning of some is that1 a full utilization of science in this area might make an al ready excellent program even better Being near the top in dental health isnt as good as being clear at the top it is reasoned by some of my den tist friends And I think theyre exactly right As matters stand less than
