(Posed by the Opposition)
Statements made by the ADA, throughout their Fluoridation Facts
booklet, leads the reader to believe that dentists are in a position to
know if fluoride is truly "safe and effective" are they?
December 21, 1999, David C. Kennedy, D.D.S. of San Diego, CA., Past President
of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, received
a letter from Arlyce Ten Broeck, Assistant Executive Officer of the Board
of Dental Examiners. It read:
you wrote to the Board of Dental Examiners and asked for a yes or no
answer to the following question:
determination of whether a specific individual, or subset of the population,
is at any time suffering from, or will suffer from adverse health effects
outside of the oral cavity from ingested fluoride within the purview
As we understand
the question, the answer is no. As phrased, your question would appear
to relate to a medical diagnosis." (See 43-1: copy of letter).
significance of this answer should be apparent to those individuals
who have seen local dentists, as well as national spokespersons with
dental licenses, offer their credentials as a dentist as proof that
they possess expertise on the subject of whether adverse health effects
do or do not occur, or may or may not occur, as a result of exposure
to ingested fluoride." (See 43-2: "Background and Commentary").
