How do I know if my home has fluoridated water or if my child needs a fluoride prescription?
Please fill out the Fluoride Analysis Questionnaire and either mail, fax, or email it to our office in advance so we can have a plan of supplementation ready for you at your child’s next visit. This form will help the doctor assess your child’s need for fluoride supplements. One questionnaire will need to be completed for each patient as supplements vary according to the child's age.
- If you have a reverse osmosis system or whole house carbon water filter in your home, you will need to test your water for fluoride. Most of these systems will remove the fluoride from your water even if you live in an area with fluoridated community water. You will want to check your water with a fluoride testing kit.
- If you are unsure as to whether or not you have fluoride in your water,or need your water tested as above, you can pick up a testing kit from our office.
