San Diego Dialogues on Fluoridation

Effectiveness of Population-based Interventions on Oral Health was a three year research project intended to provide advocates with a deeper understanding of San Diegans’ positions on fluoridation than could be obtained through opinion polls or focus groups; and to improve their capability to effectively conduct a public learning process for fluoridation issues and other health issues that require public support; e.g. tobacco, AIDS, and immigrant health.
