Abstract

Following the election of the British government in May 1997, a policy document outlining proposals to improve the health of the nation was published.This document placed a major emphasis on reducing inequalities in health and recognised the continuing poor state of oral health in deprived communities. However, whilst acknowledging the benefits of water fluoridation as a caries preventive measure, the Department of Health suggested that most of the research had been carried out some years ago and furthermore, recognised that strong views were held both for and against fluoridation.
