Welcome to the blog!

Health tips, life tools, community talk.

For something we do twice a day, every day,
it's worrying how little care we give oral health!
So we started this blog to change that by...

  • enlightening you, as we were enlightened ourselves, to the technique tips that make a real difference to your oral health.
  • elevating brushing from hated chore, to a rewarding ritual by providing tools that make brushing a more enjoyable part of your day.
  • engaging you with us, fellow members and the dental community to build trust and talk about how we can improve oral health together.

We have spent years working with dentists and doing research into this area to build quip and this blog, but please note that everything you read on this site is for informational purposes only.

This blog contains many opinion based pieces and not every professional's opinion will be the same as ours! Every mouth is unique and so is everyone's oral care needs. What works for you may not work for others, and vice versa, so whatever you read here, please always consult with your own dentist or physician before acting on any advice or making any changes to your oral health routine, as your needs may be different and your Dentist may have differing advice to ours!
