I was more than willing to give the quip electric toothbrush a try. After all, I have a bit of a toothbrush obsession — something that’s greatly exacerbated by the all-time biggest candy-eating holiday of the year. I’d like to blame it on working for a dentist for many years, but it’s probably because I feel like everything is going south since turning 40, and I’m determined to keep my teeth and gums in tip-top shape.

Created with the hopes that design would have a bigger impact on oral health than lots of gimmicks, the quip toothbrush definitely delivers.

The sleek, rounded design makes it comfortable to hold, while the timer buzzes at 30 second intervals and shuts off at 2 minutes, making your tooth brushing routine more effective. And, dare I say, you may even look forward to it a bit more.

Not to mention, there’s a rose gold option. (Sorry, I’m a sucker for metallics).

Quip toothbrush review: A brilliant subscription service -- or just buy a single. Here's why we love it.

You can easily hang the brush on your mirror using the holder (which doubles as a travel cover, by the way). And if you purchase a refill plan, you’ll get a new battery plus a new brush head every 3 months — something so many people (including myself more often than I’d like to admit) forget to replace as often as we should.

The quip can be purchased alone, or as a set with their anti-cavity toothpaste. They’ve even got family plans as well, which makes most sense now that they offer the new quip for kids, sized for smaller mouths.

Now the quip it’s certainly not as cheap as whatever toothbrush you might grab at your local drugstore, but it’s not at all as high-priced I had expected.

And if it gets you and your family to stay on top on your toothbrushing, especially without you having to nag the kids, I say it’s definitely worth a look.
