Hello everyone,

I am curious, I just sent a newsletter out to our existing patients about how Fluoride effects your dental health. I have a lot of patients who are very "anti-fluoride", even if I give out free tooth paste they ask if it has fluoride in it first. So I was wondering, what do you say or do to these patients?

Thank you in advance for your responses.

Warmest regards,

Dentist in Rancho Cucamonga

Yes. I have also experiened this quite a few times. The cause is the scientifically illiterate media which has spread thenotion that fluoride is bad for health.

The solution for this problem is intensive patient counselling both by clinician and staff.
