The study indicated that the public doesnt understand how to properly apply toothpaste, Jonathan Shenkin, DDS, MPH, Dental Association spokesman and pediatric dentist in Augusta, Maine, said on Saturday.
While the dental association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry offer conflicting advice on when exactly to begin brushing your child's teeth with fluoride toothpaste, it is most important to ensure that you are using the right quantity so that your child won't swallow too much, according to Dr. Shenkin.
