17Who is Dr. Sheffield?
Dr. Washington Wentworth Sheffield was an American dental surgeon who invented modern toothpaste. With the help of his son Lucius T.

18Is Dr. Sheffield’s made by a large corporate company?
No! Sheffield’s Certified Natural Toothpaste is made in historic New London CT, on the same site that Dr. Sheffield invented Toothpaste in a tube over 160 years ago!

The Sheffield company has been on the same site in New London, CT since 1850! We have Dr. Sheffield’s original formulation and recipe books, and we are a privately held company committed to maintaining our heritage and Dr. Sheffield’s vision.
20 Why has the company decided to launch the toothpaste brand after all of these years?
We saw that natural products were in demand, and we felt that the natural toothpaste market, which is dominated by one brand, did not offer consumers a choice for a great tasting product which was effective. Who better than Sheffield, the originator of toothpaste in a tube to introduce an alternative?
