Video: Dr. Liz on Bottled Water

Thank you to Mark Tenia of WRIC TV 8 (ABC) for helping us educate the Richmond community about the pros and cons of bottled water.

Pros: Convenience

Cons: Most bottled waters lack fluoride and therefore don’t contribute necessary minerals that strengthen your child’s teeth

Watch Dr. Liz explain the reasons behind our philosophy.

As with most things, we recommend moderation. SOME bottled water is okay, but make sure your children get mostly tap water to keep their teeth healthy and strong!

For more information about choosing the best drinks for your children, here’s a helpful blog post about the best (and worst) options. We also recommend that you read about Richmond’s water supply, and how it contains the optimal levels of fluoride for healthy teeth.
