Dr. Sandras and our friendly dental team in Larose, LA want to be your go-to resource for all things dental... and that includes fun dental history and trivia, too! You may use a toothbrush every day (we hope!), but did you know its long and fascinating history? The history of the toothbrush is longer than you might think! Though toothbrushes as we know them today have only existed since about 1938, people have long been concerned about dental hygiene.
