News on the ADA’s statement on recent Wisconsin anti-fluoridation movements, learn how to join the Women In Dentistry group, and information on accessing the Vaping Webinar Update hosted by Edie Gibson, RDH, MS.

I’m Tiffany Stark and you’re watching IDH Weekly on Aegis TV. The ADA recently released a statement regarding a joint effort with the Wisconsin Dental Association and other fluoridated water proponents, to address February anti-fluoridation movements in three Wisconsin municipalities. Recent action is part of a larger movement to encourage states to adopt early notification laws. The laws generally require water systems to provide advance notice to the public and state health officials of proposed changes to fluoridation programs, thereby giving the public greater opportunity to express concerns regarding the elimination of fluoridation. Early notification laws are currently in place in Tennessee, Alabama, Texas, New York and Missouri.

While the number of women entering the dental industry and being appointed to leadership and academic roles has increased, current statistics still show a significant gap in representation.
