              The purpose of this project was to increase the California population receiving fluoridation as a safe, effective, and cost-efficient remedy to the neglected epidemic of tooth decay. The oral health status of California's children falls short of the Healthy People 2000 objectives in most categories. The goal of the project was to achieve public awareness of the benefits of fluoridation and create a climate conducive to implementation of the new California Fluoridation Act. Successful fundraising strategies coupled with the provision of technical expertise to communities resulted in the creation of local coalitions, community education, and capital funding supporting fluoridation. As a result, three of California's four largest cities and three other medium sized communities are committing to providing fluoridation to their residents - a doubling of the California population receiving fluoridation.
