While for the most part the studies from which the Community Water Fluoridation (CWF) evidence is drawn are of high calibre and the conclusions drawn from them are irrefutable, science is rarely if ever, perfect. Sometimes the evidence arises from studies which are not, from a scientific perspective, as perfect as would be hoped for. Despite these shortcomings, the evidence identifying the benefits of CWF leading to policies that encourage and maintain fluoridation continues to be relevant today.
