Oraglide is a business, run by 13 year old CEO, who sells quality, plastic tongue cleaners which remove daily bad breath. Tongue cleaners have been shown to remove most of the white film layer of bacteria on one's tongue. Using our cleaner is easy and is not painful at all. 90 million Americans suffer from bad breath These people are 60% more likely to suffer from stress than those who do not have bad breath.

Please join us in our efforts to get rid of bad breath, project part II! We are launching for a second time because we need the capital to fulfill our exponentially increasing orders. With the money from Kickstarter, we will continue to purchase more tongue cleaner units in order to fulfill orders.

The Oraglide tongue cleaner is a durable, plastic scraper, manufactured with a curved "u" shape at the head of the tool. The comfort of the handle, unique shape, and impeccable resilience allows individuals to easily and painlessly remove the layer of bacteria on the tongue (causing Halitosis).

Oraglide has been gaining more and more media publicity, as our 13 year old CEO has had interviews on Fox Rochester News' Good Day Rochester, 95.1 The Brew, Warm 101.3, News 10 WHEC, and TWC News Rochester.

 Halitosis, known as bad breath, is the odor resulting from the release of bacteria on the human tongue; simply put, Halitosis is bad breath. Oraglide will not only create awareness surrounding the impacts of Halitosis but will also introduce a trustworthy, cost-effective tongue cleaner. This tongue cleaner will bring fresh, clean breathes to those suffering both physically and mentally from Halitosis.

Oraglide's Competitive Advantages:

  • Wholesale pricing of a quality product (low cost)
  • Minimal requirement of one scrape versus multiple with competitor's tongue cleaners
  • Marketing wholesale to dentist offices to maximize profits
  • Secondarily marketing to hotels, motels, small stores, and privately-owned pharmacies
  • Our tongue cleaner is plastic and doesn't chip people's teeth
  • Tongue brushes just spread/move around bacteria while ours removes it

Tongue cleaners have been used for many generations in Asia and have been exponentially increasing in popularity here in the United States. We wanted to bring the market here as there is a large demand for a remedy to bad breath.

Oraglide will operate with a passion for others, as well as practicing uncompromising integrity. While profit is sought in any business, Oraglide is sensitive to the struggles of those not able to afford the important oral education and cleaning necessary. We believe in healthy mouths and education to less-fortunate kids as Oraglide is donating a portion of all profits to the Kids Smiles Dental Centers.

 As advocates of the oral healthcare industry, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and oral doctor recognize the impact of Halitosis on their patients, both physically and emotional traumatizing.

Currently, various tongue scrapers are sold in retail stores everywhere, however, there is an underlying question for oral hygiene advocates- when a product is recommended, does a patient actually go out and purchase it? After incurring a bill for a root canal or a filling?

Oraglide will maximize profits by primarily marketing to dentist offices wholesale due to the low cost of our tongue cleaner. Our product will then be distributed to the dentist' patients in their end-of-the-visit goodie bag. Oraglide secondarily markets to small stores, privately-owned pharmacies, hotels, and motels.

Risks and challenges

Our risks and challenges includes increasing competition. We are starting to notice our competition and our goal is to gradually surpass the competition. If we can fulfill our goals, we can rise to the top of the bad breath removal industry.
