If a dentist makes his money off people with unhealthy teeth, why should I trust…

I’m a groovy cat who’s into technology, Eastern Thought, and house music. I’m a proud and dedicated father to the coolest little guy on the planet (seriously, I'm NOT biased). I’m fascinated by ninjas, the Internet, and anybody who can balance objects on their nose for long periods of time.
I have a utility belt full of programming languages and a database of all my knowledge on databases... I practice code fu. Oh, I've also done actual Kung Fu, and have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
I run. I meditate. I dance. I blog at PaulSpoerry.com, tweet @PaulSpoerry, and I'm here on Google+.
I'm currently work for IBM developing web enabled insurance applications for IBM and support and develop a non-profit called The LittleBigFund.

exactly. I don't trust dentists. I read research papers on toothpastes and experiment also. 🙂

I no longer trust dentists either. I had a partial that was put on when I was in 5th grade (snapped a tooth in half hitting it on the floor, hurt like crazy). So this next dentist looks and tells me he can't believe it's still on and I need a crown (expensive option) or to replace it (less "good" option). So I get the damn crown put in. Yaaaaaaaaaaaa so now, while cosmetically perfect, I have a low tolerance for cold things. It was fine before, I should never have listened to him.

I really like my dentist – very smart and honest.

I've always dealt with sensitive teeth. I've tried all the different "sensitive" brands with varying degrees of success. I finally started reading about toothpaste being a gimmick and after consulting my dentist uncle I stopped using toothpaste all together.
I now brush 2-3 times a day(at my computer, in the car, etc), as soon as I sense anything but smooth, clean teeth with my tongue. Brush tongue and floss once a day. My teeth are now whiter and healthier than they've ever been. I'm practically incapable of bad breath and can literally bite into icecream or have ice in a drink hit my teeth without a second thought!
Ditching toothpaste 3 years ago has been quite revolutionary for me. Just baking soda periodically when you want a bit deeper clean and your dentist will be patting you on the back for your oral hygiene too. [=

dentists make a lot of their money from routine maintenance, aka plaque removal. regardless of toothpaste used, most people have plaque buildup

There's plenty of legit dentists out there but there's also a lot of con artists too, and even the legit dentists seem to fight tooth and nail (NPI) to avoid any of their patients getting dentures, regardless of how decrepit their patients' teeth may be, and regardless of the patients' wishes.
