Ours do say it on the label.

> I have no problem with fluoride in the water. Not all towns do it, but if you live in a town that does and you object, you can always buy bottled water. It revolutionized dental health for children. I wish they had done it when I was a child, so my teeth didn't all decay and end up falling apart by the time I was a young adult.

If you have money to buy bottled water then you can buy bottled water, yes.

Do you mind if I ask about tooth brushing when you were a child / how much soda / sweets / corn syrup / sugar / refined carbohydrates were part of your diet?

I know that there can be individual variation in enamel thickness and individual variation in how enamel wears (traditional diets high in grit wear out enamel pretty good, or where flour is mixed with fine stones)...

But dentine (the material underneath the enamel) will remodel and harden / compact over time so as to protect the pulp cavity. So long as you keep acid off / away (so gentle brushing after meals and preferably avoiding complex carbohydrates).

I wonder... Whether in some communities dentists are quicker to plug holes in enamel thinking that people simply won't follow the nutritional / behavioral advice that they would (for example) probably enforce with their own children...
