Growing up, we always received toothpaste and a toothbrush in our stockings. A very practical item that was well needed after eating the candy that was also in our stocking! To keep this tradition in my family, I've found a company that has created a line of All-Natural Oral Care products free of fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, alcohol, colors and additives.
We received their children's product, Dr. Sharp Strawberry Cream Kids Toothpaste, and we couldn't be happier with it. It's a relief for me to know that my kids can brush their own teeth without me hovering over them, making sure they don't swallow it.
I tried it myself and enjoyed the natural sweet strawberry flavor, which is a combination of natural sage and bambusa stem extracts. The consistency of the Strawberry Cream Toothpaste is similar to the traditional toothpaste, and tonight my daughter told me that she really likes the flavor of it!
If you use a traditional brand of toothpaste, have you ever read the warning on the back? Mine reads, "WARNINGS Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away."
With three kids three and under running around in my home, this is kind of frightening. I mean we don't typically consider toothpaste to be something that should be locked up in our medicine cabinet…
"If ingested, one tube of fluoridated toothpaste can kill a child."

Here are a few things that I really love about Dr. Sharp's products:
1. Free of fluoride, sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens, alcohol, colors and additives
2. Is safe to swallow
3. Eco-Friendly packaging is printed with soy ink
4. "Our toothpastes have received the highest rating from the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology, classified as a “periodontal therapeutic formula.” The IAOMT is the world’s foremost researcher on fluoride since it was introduced to the public water system in the 1950s."
About Dr. Sharp
"As a natural progression of his specialty practice, in 2001, after conducting extensive research with the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT), Dr. Sharp learned that fluoride in the public water system coupled with its inclusion in the foods and beverages we ingest on a daily basis is commonly linked to a wide range of health problems. Upon such findings, he became determined to develop his own brand- a natural, non-toxic and healthy alternative to fluoride toothpaste that is now proudly offered at boutique pharmacies, natural health specialty stores, luxury hotels and spas, high-end cosmetic & beauty product catalogs, online retailers and dentist offices throughout the world."
