Tucson Water:
The water in Tucson does not have added fluoridation.  Tucson City Council voted in 1992 to fluoridate the water but that has not been done.  Optimal Fluoride level in drinking water for good dental health is: 0.7 ppm to 1.2 ppm. Tucson's average natural fluoride level: 0.3
To find fluoride level in your water supply check Tucson water web site: www.tucsonaz.gov/water.  Click on "water quality" then "water quality in my neighborhood."
