Savannah is fluoridated as is most of Georgia: "Evalyn Chambless has called 27 dentists around Metter looking for one willing to work within her fixed income.
None would accept Medicaid, she said. Some offered discounts, but it wasn't enough."
Tooth decay: a sad national epidemic caused by lack of dentists who care and not a fluoride need. Extensive lobbying, political maneuvering and expensive public relations campaigns by organized dentistry sway legislators to add fluoride chemicals into public water supplies, 2/3 of which already are, to benefit those whom dentists neglect. Protecting their high-salaried monopoly, dentists lobby against dental groups offering quality, cheaper fixes. Fluoride product makers benefit most.
