This program will provide participants with an insight view of toothpaste. It will include a overview of commonly used active and inactive ingredients, as well as explain their role in disease management, so to allow the professional a needs-specific product recommendation.

Toothpowders and dental creams have been used by ancient civilizations as early as 5,000 BC. What was once formulated with egg shells and crushed bones to remove debris has evolved into one of the most complex health care products. Today, toothpaste developers strive to create formulations meeting the needs of our modern populations – from cosmetic benefits to disease management and prevention.
