How the Dental Hygiene programs became accepted...1951

Fluoride to the rescue...

Bruce Forsythe, DDS, Assistant Surgeon General, Chief Dental Officer, Public Health Service, Federal Security Agency

"To date there are 450 communities which have established continuing topical fluoride programs. This program has demonstrated the usefulness of dental hygienists, and has increased a demand for their services. I think it is important to note that during the past 3 -year period, hygienist training schools have almost doubled in the United States. I think we can take partial credit for it from this type of program."
