petzlife spray/gel seems to get decent reviews, so I'll definitely look into that.
I buy kids toothbrushes and just cut off half of the bristles if that makes sense, so they aren't so tall. It works really well.

I use a toddlers toothbrush on Luna. She doesn't really mind me brushing her teeth every other night. I think she got used to it. Since I been doing it since she was 3 months. My sister works at a dentist office and she is always trying to make me brush Luna's teeth almost every night.

I use "human" tooth brushes too. I use the Oral-B electric one with the soft head. I use a dog gel to brush with and the petzlifde spray too. Yes he doesn't like the dental care but I remain calm and firm--show no hesitation and go straight to work. It is only a 2 minute task. Rico is almost 5 and he had one "dental" at the vet , mostly because he had retained baby teeth (can you say double canines). The dental invovled general anethesia and he didn't need it per se but those extra teeth needed to come out.
