Colgate Total® with triclosan is the toothpaste most recommended and used by dental professionals in the USA, as well as one of the most extensively tested and researched toothpastes in the world.

Ninety clinical studies, 20,000 subjects and 20 years of research support its clinical efficacy. It has been accepted by the American Dental Association and more than 40 other national dental associations and has been reviewed and approved by regulatory bodies worldwide. Recent media reports have questioned its safety and approval by the US Food and Drug Administration. The purpose of this course is to provide oral health professionals with a sound understanding of the toxicology and safety of triclosan as used in Colgate Total®. This knowledge will help the practitioner to respond to patients’ needs and discuss any questions raised.

  • Understand the science supporting the safe use of triclosan in Colgate Total toothpaste
  • Discuss the safety of triclosan in Colgate Total toothpaste
  • Discuss media reports based on facts and science
