quip was founded to prove that good design would have a bigger impact on oral health than quick fix gimmicks

The full story

A dentist's insight

quip's journey began at a neighborhood dentist in New York, and a suggestion to use "the cheapest electric brush available" to fight the common, and damaging, habit of brushing too hard. It turned out that years of toothbrush "innovation" had barely improved the humble toothbrush and, instead, had only served to overshadow the far more damaging, habitual problems that still persist.

Brushing too hard, not brushing long enough, not brushing twice a day, not replacing your brush and not going to the dentist are issues that are ignored yet have a far bigger impact on oral health than a "Bluetooth Ultra Sonic" toothbrush alone could ever have. So we set out to address that...

The basics

A user focused design

As designers, this challenge excited us. Unshackled by the constraints of a board room, marketing team or finance department, we were uniquely positioned to set out with the honest aim of solving these core problems without bias, using the product and user experience design skills we knew best.

We soon realized that there were three main causes behind the core problems: over complex and confusing functionality, over designed and clunky products and a total lack of services to cater to the modern lifestyle. So we set about creating a more honest, accessible and simple oral care line that would cut out the excess to help focus on the basics that really matter...

A digital connection

After years of user research and design, the core components of quip came together. A simple service that focused on the dental tips and tools that really matter, cutting out those that don't. However, the only way for us to truly simplify and remove the excess, was to base quip online, cutting out the middle man and bringing the benefits we worked so hard for, directly to you.

By doing this, we can improve every aspect of your experience, from design to delivery, and provide the best experience at the best price, without interference. We are quip, and we are the modern bridge between you and your dentist, and this is just the beginning...
