Clinical Evaluation of Goby Toothbrush in Progress

While strolling the aisles of the Chicago Dental Society’s Annual MidWinter Meeting, I came across a small booth for a company called Goby.
I had heard about Goby and their cool powered toothbrush before, but I had never had a chance to actually get my hands on one.  The folks at the booth were energetic and friendly and they told me a bit about Goby and their mission as a company.
Basically the company believes that a good quality powered toothbrush shouldn’t be a tremendously expensive item.  To that end, they are selling their brushes for $50 to $60 depending on the color.  They have an all black kit (pictured above and *surprise* my personal favorite) and an all pink both for $60 and a white version for $50.
Devices like this are a perfect fit into my ‘wheelhouse’ as they help both dentists and patients while providing great technology.  I haven’t used a manual brush for at least a decade and I would never go back.  We don’t sell brushes in our office, but we are always recommending powered brushes to our patients.  Of course the #1 pushback we receive is the cost of the brush.  Goby caught my eye because it’s a powered brush that the company is making an effort to keep affordable.
On Thursday, my all black Goby arrived!  So, for the next 4 weeks or so, I’m going to be using it and I’ll report back on my experiences.
