My dad was a dentist, so I grew up hearing terms like periodontal disease and root canal in everyday conversation. His office was attached to our house, and I could never escape a dental check-up, x-ray or fluoride rinse even if I tried. Over 10 years ago, my mother and father were both diagnosed with cancer. Since then, I’ve started taking a closer look at all of the products we use in our home that contain potentially harmful chemicals.
Whether it’s a personal care product or kitchen essential, I always switch to a non-toxic alternative if there are any ingredients of concern. In this natural dental care series, I’m digging deep into dental products that I feel good about purchasing and using, and I’m sharing everything I’ve learned right here.
