Hi, my name is Robert McCulla. My team and I at Turlock Dental Care have been providing excellent dental care for our patients in California since 1986.
One of the important habits of good oral health is daily tooth brushing with an effective toothpaste. There is a wide variety of toothpastes available. I recommend you use one with fluoride and make sure it has the ADA seal. This ensures that the toothpaste has been tested, claims are being met, and the ingredients are correct.
Just because a toothpaste claims to have a ‘whitener’ doesn’t mean it has fluoride.
Toothpaste as we know it has only been in existence since the late 1800s. Fluoride was added in 1914. The earliest evidence of toothpaste or dental cream dates back to 3000-5000 BC. The Ancient Egyptians pulverized oxen hooves, egg shells, pumice, myrrh, and water creating one of the earliest forms of toothpaste.
The Greeks and Romans began adding crushed bones and bark to the mix. The taste most likely was hard to take. During this same time the people of China and India were using a similar paste, but adding flavorings, like Ginseng and herbal mints making it a bit more palatable.
San Jose toothpaste users have no excuse for not brushing their teeth daily with the toothpaste we have available today.

The Turlock Guide to Veneers
It’s easy to see why so many of our patients at Turlock Dental Care in Turlock CA love porcelain veneers. Veneers can be used to address many flaws, and deliver brilliant results.
If you would like to improve your smile with porcelain veneers, you want a trusted dentist with extensive experience performing this treatment. The porcelain veneer procedure is more complicated than you may realize.
A veneer is an ultra-thin shell of medical-grade porcelain that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. Each one is custom made. Veneers cover chips, cracks, and stains, and can also improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.
It’s important to understand that porcelain veneers are not reversible. A thin layer of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. Thus, the tooth can never be restored to its original condition.
At Turlock Dental Care in Turlock CA, we’ve improved countless smiles with porcelain veneers. People from Modesto, Patterson, and Oakdale also come to our practice for same day dentistry, emergency dentistry, and TMJ treatment. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

I have finally found a dentist/hygienist that I feel comfortable with. I was there today and felt relaxed the entire time and am actually looking forward to going back for more dental work. Weird, but true.
