Dr. Kami Hoss Reinvents the Toothbrush
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, childhood tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children right now. It is four times more common than early childhood obesity, five times more common than asthma, and 20 times more common than juvenile diabetes. In fact, one in five California kindergarteners has had more than seven cavities and 71% of California third graders currently have dental decay. Because oral care is a critical part of overall health, poor oral health can impact a child’s long-term physical health and even longevity.
Dr. Kami Hoss and The Super Dentists have introduced The Super Toothbrush, an interactive toothbrush that encourages children to brush their teeth properly with a special integrated augmented reality component. Each toothbrush includes a magic sticker for the bathroom mirror that, when paired with VIVARRA Dental app, brings The Tooth Keri to life to remind kids how to brush and floss their teeth correctly. The Super Toothbrush also features a two-minute tooth-brushing song so children know how long they should be brushing, as well as premium Tynex DuPont bristles for comfort and a long-lasting battery.
“Parents have been asking us for toothbrush recommendations for years,” said Dr. Kami Hoss, Co-founder of The Super Dentists. “We developed this toothbrush with the latest in augmented reality technology, to make brushing fun for kids. Getting them to develop good oral health care habits while they’re young is part of an overall whole-person health care plan that will benefit them for the rest of their life.”
There are four Super Toothbrushes featuring The Super Dentists superhero and villain characters – Dr. Have One Super Smile, The Tooth Keri, Cavitar, and Molar – available in all The Super Dentists offices or on Amazon. A collector’s set with all four characters will be available this fall. Other oral health care products, including toothpastes and mouth washes, will follow.
