A small amount of fluoride is added to drinking water in some parts of the UK to improve dental health at the request of the local health authority.  Fluoride is not added to any drinking water supply in Scotland.  The decision on whether to begin adding fluoride to water supplies in Scotland would be one for the local NHS Health Board, but DWQR is not aware of any current plans to do this anywhere in Scotland.
