When health related information is given by a non-medical professional, people tend to disqualify it. When provided by a professional, who has had first-hand experience with patients, people believe it. The information becomes reliable.
Dr. Cameron Clokie is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a businessman. He has spent over 30 years practicing academic and clinical dentistry and is with no doubt very qualified to give advice on dental care.
When traveling far or just within your country, Dr. Cameron advises that you take your time to pack two extra pairs of toothbrushes and toothpaste. Ensure that the different brushes are in different bags if possible. He suggests that if possible, you should carry a toothbrush in your pocket for convenience sake.
It is also worth to remember that your mouth has the much-needed bacteria and adding more is only harmful to your health. Thus, always keep your toothbrushes dry to prevent a bacterial infection while you are away from home.
According to Cameron, you should also pack other dental health accessories such as dental floss and mouthwash. You may find yourself in a place with no clean water to brush and the accessories will step in big time.
Carrying a pack of sugarless gum that is flavored with Xylitol is also an excellent tip that will save your teeth when you are in no position to brush. Chewing sugarless gum enhances the flow of saliva, thus cleansing your teeth naturally.

Once you get to your destination, take some time and study the area. Take note of some stores from which you can find good dental care products, just in case you misplaced yours.
Carrying your clean water is a right move. Some countries do not have clean, drinkable tap water and using such water to brush will only do more harm than good. The same case applies to food. Choose eateries that are clean, lest you introduce more bacteria to your mouth.
