The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recognized community water fluoridation as one of the ten greatest public health achievements of the 20th century. It reduces tooth decay over a person's lifetime by 25%. Over the past 40 years, there have been 6 failed attempts to fluoridate the drinking water in the town of Bennington. There is an overabundance of tooth decay affecting citizens of Bennington. The need for dental care in Bennington far outweighs the resources available.
