Infant Formula and Fluoridated Water

A multi-disciplinary expert panel convened by the ADA's Council on Scientific Affairs issued a January 2011 report containing clinical recommendations on children's fluoride intake from infant formula. Evidence-based clinical recommendations are intended to provide dentists and other health professionals with a review of the latest scientific evidence on particular topics and are not considered a standard of care. Rather, the health care professional can consider clinical recommendations, patient preference and his or her own clinical judgment when diagnosing and treating patients.
