|I don't know what kind of toothbrush you have, but I recommend a "finger brush". It's a little rubber cup that fits over a human finger. Mine is red and it came from Petsmart.
Instead of letting you lick toothpaste off his finger, let your dad put it on the finger brush and you can lick it off that. When you get used to that, he can try touching one of your fangs with the finger brush. When you get used to having your teeth touched, he can try rubbing your teeth with the finger brush. If he progresses slowly, doing a little more every day and letting you set the limits, you should learn to accept it. Just keep the focus on eating toothpaste as a treat, not on the toothbrushing thing.
