Welsh water should reinstate fluoridation on Anglesey

Br Dent J. 1995 Jan 21;178(2):46-7. doi: 10.1038/sj.bdj.4808643.


In 1992, Welsh Water withdrew the successful water fluoridation scheme on Anglesey. Despite evidence of the benefits of water fluoridation and the rise in number of children with tooth decay since the scheme's withdrawal, Welsh Water is still not prepared to re-establish the scheme.
