"The app is at the heart of how the system works. The toothbrush captures data about how you’ve brushed. Instead of having no information about how you’ve brushed, you have the ability to look at that data afterwards, as will your dentist, to track your performance and provide any points of intervention".
Product Designer, David Fowler, MD of InDev Innovation Developments

"If I could see exactly where my patients are missing their brushing… that is gold-dust for a dentist".
Jon Benton, Dentist

Benefits of Dentii

  • Single Use, Biodegradable Brush heads  

Dentii's unique single use brush heads can be replaced with every use. Because they're made from corn-starch they're 100% recyclable, so are as kind to the planet as they are to your teeth!

It’s also the most hygienic - by far! 

It's best to use a new brush head every time because otherwise you're going to be bringing the bacteria from the last use back into the mouth

Stylish Finishes and Features

The brushes are made of aluminium and are anodized to provide years of performance brushing. The Gold and Rose Gold versions are different, they are actually plated with 18Krt Gold and 18Krt Rose Gold respectively. The brush, as well as the consumable Dentii products, can be stored in the high quality travel case when on-the-go or in the bathroom unit, which combines a real wood cap covering a storage unit, lending a uniquely stylish look to your bathroom.

A Brush for Life

We deliver brushes, mouthwash & toothpaste whenever you run out using a leading courier service to keep everything safe. With subscriptions ranging from £15 per month to around £45 for the complete range of available products, you can manage your requirements and order directly through the app. If anything does go wrong with your brush or the charger we will repair or send a new one for free while your applicable subscription is in place.

Dentii App to Connect, Sync and Update

Your brush will connect with the Dentii app to provide the ability to sync with a healthcare professional and create personalised dentistry records. Even if you do not have your phone with you while brushing, the brush will store your brushing performance data until such time as your phone is within range and connects again.

  •  Allows real time brushing technique to be shown on the app. 
  •  Allows the user to personalise the app, according to what is actually in their mouth so that they know what areas to concentrate on.
  • The app doubles up as a resource centre for info on oral hygiene.
  • The app also allows (if the consumer wants), access for their own dental health care professional to see brushing habits, techniques, points out shortfalls, and stores for 6 months. 
  •  The app will soon be able to alert you of when it's time to visit the dentist and we want to develop this even further in the future.
  •  It's the worlds first app that allows real time feedback connected to a brush. Its main features are...

Risks and challenges

While Sunny and David bring over twenty years of experience to Dentii, Sunny at the highest level of UK dental practises and David in the cutting-edge new product development and sustainability industries, and Dentii is supported by the very best international network with industry leading operations teams and production facilities available - a team who have brought to market products for some of the world’s leading brands, including leading mobile device and technology brands - there are inevitably some risks with any groundbreaking product.

Innovation Risks
We are blazing a new trail when it comes to brush head technology, working with the very best vendors and material scientists to provide a compostable solution including the bristles, an industry first and so able to offer a truly hygienic first time use brush, free of contamination and bacteria to minimise mouth-borne bacteria.

Likewise we are harnessing the very latest in sensor technology.

However each element of the design has proven functional in its own right and all these risks are mitigated by the resources and experience of this network and our team who have a long history of performance.
So we’re confident we can overcome these challenges and to bring a new level of quality, sustainable and high performing products to market.

Timescale Risk
A number of factors pose a risk to the delivery timescale including the potential for delays in manufacturing, outside of our direct control, and innovative elements which may cause delay when being brought into full production.

The team are very experienced and aware of these factors so capable of managing them to best effect.
