We encourage you to pay attention to the type of toothpaste you give small children. Levels of fluoride and other agents vary from product to product.

A pea-sized amount is recommended for children under six years of age but read the fine print on the tube for recommendations. You should also keep it out of reach; kids are sometimes tempted to eat toothpaste.

Fluoride is helpful in preventing dental caries but too much can cause defects in the enamel or even more serious conditions. Check with us if you'd like more guidelines and recommendations.
