Ive never used baking soda as a substitute for toothpaste but I have heard many positive responses to it. I just cant see why fluoride toothpaste is so bad if used as toothpaste as in not-swallowed. Yes it is poison but thats the very reason its in toothpaste because in such a small amount it kills bacteria on teeth therefor allowing better health in the mouth. Like the poster said above too much baking soda can be abrasive which would be harmful to your mouth. In most cases of dentistry i bet the majority of cavity filled patients don't brush daily and just overall don't take care of their mouth as in brushing period with toothpaste or not. I don't get the whole conspiracy with toothpaste as if it was such a problem the millions of people brushing daily would know about it and recognize the effects. Fluoride is there to kill bacteria on your teeth, not to (calcify your third eye).
