I am a parent and dentist whose personal and professional life has been upended by this pandemic. If you’re reading this, and haven’t gone through similar turmoil, I would like to meet you. While most of the country is trying to get a grip on what to do about the upcoming school year, those of us in the dental field are dealing with a debate of our own.

Last month, the World Health Organization (WHO) released interim guidance advising routine, non-essential oral health care be postponed because of the coronavirus and transmission risks. Less than two weeks later, the American Dental Association (ADA) released a statement saying that it “respectfully yet strongly disagrees.” The inconsistent recommendations are adding confusion in

A Malaysian dentist has shocked TikTok users by revealing how much toothpaste people should really be putting on their toothbrushes — and it’s a lot less than most people think.

Dr. Gao Jye Teh, a graduate of King’s College in London, has gone viral with a video in which he shows that the amount of toothpaste often used in commercials is actually too much.

Instead, he says, anyone over age three only needs a dollop of toothpaste as big as a single pea.

TikTok dentist debunks common toothpaste mistake

Dr. Gao Jye Teh is a dentist based in Malaysia who, like many professionals over the course of quarantine, decided to join TikTok to spread dental awareness in easy, 60-second videos.

He only joined the platform in September, but one of Dr. Gao’s videos on toothpaste has gone viral already — clocking in at over 6 million views.

“Are you using the right amount of toothpaste,” Dr. Gao asks in the caption. According to the comments (and this writer’s personal experience), the answer is no.

Dr. Gao explains in the video that the amount of toothpaste shown in commercials — you know, that perfect curly toothpaste swish — is way, way too much. You actually only need a dot the size of a pea.

For young kids, particularly those around the age of 3 years old, you only need a very thin smear.
