What do you think about this statement;
"If you have poor dental health and you taste your baby's food and then pop the same spoon into his mouth, you're putting him at risk."

The thing is the bacteria that can cause dental carries are common and they can get in the baby's mouth from toys and from food. If you wanted to make sure your child wasn't exposed you couldn't take your child anywhere. The bacteria is just one factor in a child getting carries. If you breastfeed and take care of your baby's teeth then you are reducing your baby's risk in those ways.
