This session will present the results of the study, The economic value of Quebec’s water fluoridation program. These results demonstrate that if caries are reduced by 30 per cent, each dollar invested in the water fluoridation program would save $71-$83 (2010) in dental costs per person, or over $560 million for the Quebec population. The water fluoridation program in Quebec is cost-effective and implementing this program across Quebec would yield extensive savings. These results support the economic arguments to widely deploy fluoridation as an intervention.
