5 out of 5 dentists in Needham getting their fluoride again

Posted by Ralph Ranalli November 14, 2007 10:00 AM


Needham began adding fluoride to its water supply again last week after a period of several weeks when the town could not get any of the chemical through its supplier, officials said.

The town had not expected not to receive any fluoride until January 2008, water treatment manager William Wanberg said, but officials were able to purchase an emergency 800-gallon supply of the substance from another chemical company.
