Everyone Deserves Healthy Teeth - Portland Water Fluoridation Campaign

Contact the City Commissioners

This week it is critical that you pick up the phone or send an email to Portland City Commissioners. We are being told from city commissioners that they are hearing from fluoridation opponents in much greater numbers (mainly from out-of-state)! We need to balance this out – and get our message out now. It is essential that they hear from the many Portlanders – like you - who support community water fluoridation as a smart public health solution to the dental health crisis.

Please grab your cell phone and take just 5 minutes to call all 5 city commissioners and speak your truth. They will quickly log your call and your position.

Sample phone message or email text: I’m a Portland resident and I want you to know that good dental health is a top priority for me and my family, and I support water fluoridation. I’m asking the Commissioner to support fluoridating Portland’s water. It’s time to end our dental health crisis with this safe, effective and affordable action. For emails, write that you are a fluoridation supporter in the subject line. Thank you, (Your name)
