Take time to allow your patient to practice brushing and coach them as they practice. Advise your patients to think of their toothbrush as a tool that delivers medicine to areas of their gums that can harbor bacteria and germs.

2. NEW! 360° SMARTRING VISUAL ALERT

Only the Oral-B GENIUS has a visual 360° SmartRing System which flashes when excessive brushing pressure is being used, to signal when the toothbrush has paired with the smartphone, and to prompt when it’s time to move to a new brushing zone. The 360˚ SmartRing colour can be customized from a range of available options to further encourage compliance.
3. ORAL-B APP: EXTENDING YOUR CARE BEYOND THE CHAIR TO HELP MOTIVATE PATIENTS AT HOME

As the majority of your patients are also smartphone users, dental health applications help you reach beyond the office and connect with your patients to motivate and coach them as they practice their oral hygiene at home.

THE ACTIVITY LOG – TRACKS AND REINFORCES YOUR ADVICE BEYOND THE OFFICE

Once your patient finishes their brushing session, the results are displayed and logged. Patients can then share their activity log with you and use the
