Fluoridated St. Louis Needs New Dental School

St. Louis Missouri has been fluoridated since 1955 and plans $23 million dental school clinic in St. Louis

Fluoridation was projected to put dentists out of business. But
 "We definitely recognize there is a huge unmet need for dental schools and oral health care in the [St. Louis] area," Dr. Chris Halliday, inaugural dean of the dental school, said.

                The school expects to hire 61 staff members at the clinic. The average salary of the clinic staffers will be $32,000, according to Phelps. Grace Hill will run the clinic's daily operations with plans to bring in about 10 dentists to work at the clinic, according to Phelps.

Tooth or consequences: The costs of poor dental fitness -

Tooth or consequences: The costs of poor dental fitness - A few years ago, an extremely sick, 2�-year-old boy came to the [fluoridated] Houston office of pediatrician Ray Wagner, MD, with a 105-degree temperature. The illness, which required five days of hospitalization and a course of intravenous antibiotics, got its start in an infected tooth; which, in turn, resulted from poor dental hygiene and a lack of dental care. Dr. Wagner, who was then an assistant professor at the University of Texas Medical School, decided to use this case as a hook for an educational session on oral health.
