Does Fairview add fluoride to the water?
Fairview does not add fluoride to its water, but because our water comes from ground water wells we do have a naturally occurring fluoride level within the city's water.

Research studies indicate that fluoride levels of 1.0 ppm (parts per million) are optimum. Correct amounts of fluoride can be beneficial, too much fluoride can be detrimental. The highest level of fluoride that is allowed in drinking water is 4.0 ppm. Our levels average about 0.1 ppm.

Although our levels are safe, we still recommend consulting your dentist for the proper fluoride levels for you and your family.
