I hope this isn't too strange of a question, but does anyone know of a toothpaste that has no or very little taste? It is always a challenge to brush my daughter's teeth as it is. I have tried several different "flavors" hoping to hit on one that would work, but have not had much luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :goodvibes

I don't know of a commercial brand, but when I was having similar trouble with brushing my daughter's teeth, my dentist contacted a local pharmacist who made us some tooth paste to my dentist's specifications. Maybe there is a pharmacist in your area who could help.

My DS favorite colour is green so we bought green toothpaste that works. It is a gel and he likes it.

Good luck

I've tried a couple of the Tom's natural toothpastes, and while there is still a bit of flavor, they aren't nearly so obnoxious as the "regular" brands. You might give one of them a try?

My DS has Asperger's and strong flavors make him gag. I found that Aquafresh for Kids (Bubblemint flavor) is the only one that he can tolerate. It has an extremely mild flavor.
