Two towns are 48km apart. One has twice as much tooth decay – Oral Health Watch

For 40 years, dental therapist Jennifer James has had the “unique experience” of treating children in Bathurst, which has fluoride in its water, and 48 kilometers away in Oberon, which doesn’t.Β Every day she sees the impact of the Oberon’s repeated decisions not to fluoridate its water supply in children’s mouths.
