On April 27, 2015, The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the final
Public Health Service recommendation for the optimal fluoride level in drinking water to prevent tooth decay. The new recommendation is for a single level of 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water. It updates and replaces the previous recommended
range (0.7 to 1.2 milligrams per liter) issued in 1962. More than 70 percent of community water systems fluoridate water, but the goal is more than 80 percent by 2020 as part of the ADA’s Action for Dental Health. More tools for providers
and social media presence are being developed by ADA to meet the goal and respond to anti-CWF sentiments.
