The American Public Health Association (APHA) champions the health of all people and all communities. For the last 75 years, community water fluoridation has been a significant public health success that continues to benefit all segments of our communities. APHA is a proud supporter and advocate of community water fluoridation as an effective, cost-saving, and safe means of preventing dental decay. There have been many successes and achievements in the community water fluoridation movement over the last 75 years. This celebration will serve as an opportunity to highlight the inspiring perseverance of our public health partners across the country. We will continue to rally our communities across the nation to prioritize health equity and prevention efforts, such as community water fluoridation, for another 75 years and beyond.
