Fluoridation Wins in New Bedford

Fluoridation Wins in New Bedford

November 8, 2006

All 42 precincts have reported and it's official - fluoridation is coming to New Bedford! The final tally was 10,893 yes to 9638 no. The Mayor was just on the radio saying that New Bedford will be fluoridated and that the goal of the referendum was to let the voters decide.
This was a true team effort led by PACE with strong support from the MA Dental Society, the Massachusetts Coalition for Oral Health, Delta Dental, the Taskforce and scores of others here and New Bedford and across the state .
