Frequent Questions

Is my water system supplying fluoridated drinking water?

The best source of information on fluoride levels in your water is your local water utility. All water utilities must provide their consumers with a Consumer Confidence Report that provides information on a system's water quality, including its fluoridation level. The state drinking water administrator or state oral health program also should be able to help you identify the fluoride level of your drinking water. In addition, the Center for Disease Control offers the "My Water's Fluoride" database, which allows consumers in currently participating states to learn the fluoridation status of their water system. You can access this database at https://nccd.cdc.gov/DOH_MWF/Default/Default.aspx. The information provided for the water system will detail if it provides fluoridated water, and may note whether the fluoride is from natural sources or if the fluoride levels are adjusted with a fluoride additive.
