Canadian city diverts $750K from fluoridation to kids' care

The city of Calgary, Alberta, has earmarked $750,000 saved from discontinuing its water fluoridation program for oral health programs targeting children from poor families, according to a story in the Calgary Herald.

On July 4, the city council's community and protective services committee approved a plan to provide funding to the Alex and Calgary Urban Project Society, which already offers mobile dental services.

The society currently offers adult-only dental services on weekends but wants to add another dental chair exclusively for children and hopes to treat up to 12,000 a year, according to the Herald.
