Why Holistic Dentists Oppose Fluoride Toothpaste No matter what some may say, dental professionals who practice in quality holistic offices like TLC Dentistry in Dunedin will tell you that it’s not at all unreasonable to be concerned about fluoride toothpaste, especially when this warning appears on the carton of all fluoride toothpaste: “Keep out of the reach of children under 6 years of age.

But you shouldn’t overlook the strong connection between gum disease and heart conditions.
