You can check out this CDC link to see if your community water is fluoridated. In warmer parts of the country, the fluoride concentration is lower since people drink more water! Here in Philadelphia our water has been fluoridated at 0.70mg/L since 1954.

Today is a great day because I got a big project approved! Also I came home to the sweetest email from Dabel in my inbox. Distance doesn’t have to mean much when it comes to friendships.
