Dietary fluoride supplement recommendations remain unchanged in light of the new recommendations for community water fluoridation in the United States

These dietary fluoride supplement recommendations are intended for children and adolescents at high risk of developing dental caries and whose primary source of drinking water is deficient in fluoride (i.e., communities with natural fluoride levels below or equal to 0.6 ppm). Since the current fluoride recommendation for Community Water Fluoridation is higher, i.e., 0.7 ppm, the 2010 ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry recommendations remain appropriate. Dentists and physicians should check on their community fluoridation levels from their local water authority before prescribing dietary fluoride supplements to their patients. 

Professor Byrne has ten published critical summaries on the EBD website, with the most recent published in the January 2015 issue of JADA titled "Peri-implant marginal bone loss is minimal after 5 years of function".
