According to the Fluoride Action Network

97% of the western European population drinks non-fluoridated tap water. These countries (after reviewing the evidence against fluoridation) either ended their "water-treatment" or simply never adopted the practice. Unanimously, these countries have seen an overall decrease in the amount of tooth decay, as reported by data from the World Health Organization
