Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; Darkie toothpaste was sold only in Asia; the brand was acquired by Colgate in 1985, after which a controversy grew in the US out of the fact that the name 'Darkie', offensive to many, was not changed right away; it wasn't until 1989 that the name changed to 'Darlie', however some pointed out that the Chinese name was not changed, and remained racist in its language

Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; this item was donated by Dr. Boris Kostiuk from Oshawa, Ontario; Dentocillin was introduced in 1950; penicillin was thought to kill the acid-producing bacteria that was blamed for causing cavities; many dentists were not convinced of its efficacy, claiming that since the penicillin did not cause ill-effects, it was probably due to it being rinsed out of the mouth so quickly, in which case it would not have any effect on tooth decay either
