A former director of the Division of Oral Health at the Centers for Disease Control will lead a discussion in Wichita on Tuesday about the fluoridation of water. The public is invited to attend the discussion by Bill Maas, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Via Christi Family Medicine/Specialty Clinics, 707 N. Emporia (use south entrance).

The event is sponsored by Wichitans for Healthy Teeth, a group that is in favor of fluoridating Wichita’s water. Voters will decide the issue on the Nov. 6 ballot.
