“I started to diversify out of the op because are carpal tunnel.” 


“I knew deep in my heart that I was meant to be a dental hygienist, even with carpal tunnel.” 


“When a company asks for me to review, I tell them that I am going to give them a completely honest review.” 


“What they found side by side is that it significantly reduced the bacteria, showing their efficacy to that oscillating brush head.”


“Patients don’t need to worry about what angle they are placing their brush head at, and convenience is compliance.” 


“The amazing AI technology will show you where you have missed plaque.” 


“I wanted a real life study so I had patients with the worse home care and plaque scores.”


“The new sensor indicates if you are pushing too hard, but also if you are not pushing hard enough, which happens.” 


“They are getting real life feedback, because when they come to see us, we only have a snapshot in time.”


“You can use the Targeted Clean brush head to target between the tooth and the gums.” 


“I want to be a little bit of Ms. Frizzle and a little bit of Bill Nye, that is my career goal.” 


“In a perfect world we would have a hygienist work with every orthodontist.” 


“When you brush for those full two minutes you get a smiley face with a wink, and who doesn't love that?!”


“Many of my patients switched from other power brushes and told me that they had never felt more clean.”
