Irish water fluoridation
Irish water fluoridation is a national, government funded programme which involves the addition of fluoride to water supplies at water fluoridation plants to a target of 0.6-0.8ppm. The aim of the programme is to prevent dental caries for the entire population without the need for compliance with any behaviour dependent measures.
Evaluations (surveys on oral health in Ireland) have shown a clear improvement in oral health/caries prevention linked to this initiative. It has also been shown to work across the social divide as it is not behaviour dependent.
