Fluoridation Outside The United States

The development of the fluoridation issue in the U.S. was closely observed by other countries. Dental and medical authorities in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Ireland endorsed fluoridation, although not without considerable opposition from various groups. Fluoridation in Western Europe was greeted less enthusiastically and scientific opinion in some countries, such as France, Germany, and Denmark, concluded that it was unsafe. Widespread fluoridation in Europe is therefore uncommon.
