Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter - Dental clinic at LTC is filling need:

Wisconsin is 89% fluoridated

"A 2001-02 DHFS survey of third-grade children found those in the Northeastern region, including the Lakeshore, to have the second-highest percentage of untreated tooth decay in the state. Children from lower income schools have more untreated tooth decay. The prevalence of dental sealants, which prevent tooth decay, was the worst in the area as well."
