Society is becoming more and more concerned with the amount of harsh chemicals and strange ingredients found in the products that we, and our children, consume. While these chemicals are regulated by the FDA, many of them do not have enough long-term studies to determine their effects on our bodies later on. As a result, many parents are switching to natural products.
My son, Carter, is 7-years-old and has two adult teeth, and recently lost his top two teeth. While we try to consistently discuss the importance of dental hygiene, we realize that it is becoming even more important now that his adult teeth have started coming in.

Carter and I were selected to try a few of The Natural Dentist products.
The Natural Dentist recognizes the concerns that parents have about the chemicals we consume, and have addressed these concerns by creating toothpaste that contains absolutely no Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, or artificial colors. After all, who needs sweeteners in their toothpaste?!
The Natural Dentist has both fluoride (Cavity Zapper) and fluoride-free (Plaque Zapper) toothpaste. Each product comes in two flavors: Berry Blast or Groovy Grape. The goal of The Natural Dentist is to be sure that parents have the best clinically-proven oral care products without the harsh ingredients found in other dental hygiene products. The toothpaste is great for adults and children alike.
When it comes to trying new products, we all know that if you want a brutally honest opinion, then the best thing to do is ask a child. So, I called Carter in to the bathroom at bed time to put The Natural Dentist Plaque Zapper to the test!
Plaque Zapper is fluoride-free and Carter tried the Groovy Grape flavor.
To get started, Carter added a pea-size amount of Plaque Zapper to his toothbrush. He then added a small amount of water to get a really nice lather.
Carter brushed and brushed, and seemed to really like the flavor!
Since Carter tried the fluoride-free version, I decided to try the Cavity Zapper for myself. Cavity Zapper does contain fluoride. It is designed to help prevent cavities, strengthen tooth enamel, clean away plaque and stains, and freshen breath. Again, it comes in two flavors: Berry Blast or Groovy Grape.
I decided to try the Berry Blast since Carter already gave us his opinion on the Groovy Grape flavor. Not to mention, I'm a berry kind of girl.
Overall, I like the toothpaste. The fact that it takes a few extra seconds to lather means your child will be spending a few extra seconds on his teeth. Also, the flavor is perfect for children—especially those hesitant to brush due to the odd flavors on the market.
The product seems to work well for adults as well, so it's great for the whole family!
