Waterpik’s Electric Toothbrush Lets You Floss And Brush At Exactly The Same Time

Major Breakthrough in Oral Care.

First ever flossing toothbrush from Waterpik®


After months of planning to introduce Waterpik’s Sonic-Fusion toothbrush, we finally had the press conference today on the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. It was picture perfect. The water, the power and the technology of the Intrepid and the Waterpik unit was a perfect match. The torrential rain hitting the huge windows in the Great Hall today was the perfect sound effect to remind everyone the power of water.

Here is the press release.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. ‒ Waterpik®, creator of the original Water Flosser, introduces Waterpik® Sonic-Fusion®, the world’s first and only flossing toothbrush. Designed for self-professed “flossing failures” who value gum health but can’t commit to the extra step, Sonic-Fusion® offers an effective, one-step oral care regimen for a complete clean.

By merging the latest Waterpik® Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush technologies, Sonic-Fusion® enables brushing and flossing at the same time. As the sonic toothbrush head cleans tooth surfaces, the Water Flosser jet inside the brush head targets plaque and debris between teeth and below the gumline where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. This flexible device also allows for brushing and flossing separately, with the touch of a button.

Waterpik® Sonic-Fusion® delivers all the clinically-proven benefits of the Waterpik® Water Flosser[1] and is significantly more effective for removing plaque vs. other sonic toothbrushes.

• Up to 2X as effective as regular brushing and flossing

• Removes up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas

Dr. Chris Salierno, DDS, tested Sonic-Fusion® with his patients who struggled with home care. “I had the opportunity to test Sonic-Fusion with my patients and I was truly amazed by the results that I saw.  My patients had significantly less plaque build-up, less bleeding and less inflammation of the gums.  It appears to me that Sonic-Fusion is not only a more effective way to brush and floss, but it’s also easier, so I found that my patients were actually flossing more often than they normally would.”

The new Sonic-Fusion® features specially engineered Waterpik® Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush technologies, as well as:

• Compact, all-in-one design that requires less counter space

• One-handed mode control for simplified use

• Three modes (brush, floss, brush + floss) for flexibility

• Advanced water pressure control and 10 settings for custom comfort

• 2-minute brushing timer with 30-second pacer

• Reservoir capacity of 60+ seconds

• Premium LED recharge indicator

• 2 patented Water Flossing brush heads included

• Deluxe toothbrush case included

• 3-year limited warranty

Waterpik® Sonic-Fusion® has earned the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance. The extensive review of the clinical research by the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs confirmed that it helps remove plaque along the gumline and between teeth and prevents and reduces gingivitis.

The new Waterpik® Sonic-Fusion® will be available online May 15th for $199.99.   For more information, visit waterpik.com/sonic-fusion

Launching A Celebrity Auction

Auction Begins July 15 at http://www.AuctionCause.com

Today is the day. We are launching the Waterpik® celebrity auction to support Hope Lives. The charity provides those touched by breast cancer, the support, knowledge, and care needed to complement their medical treatment. 

Waterpik® has provided celebrities a Waterpik® Designer Series Water Flosser to decorate in their own unique style for an online auction to raise money for this important cause. 

Our PR agency created the idea and is now responsible for making it a success. We could use your help just by participating in the online auction.

Each month Waterpik® will auction off a different Waterpik® Water Flosser, designed and personalized by popular celebrities. One hundred percent of the auction proceeds will benefit Hope Lives.

The first piece to be auctioned off is designed by Tim Allen, one of America’s great actors and comedians. The auction begins July 15, 2016, and bids will be taken for ten days. In addition to the decorated and signed Waterpik® Water Flosser, Tim Allen is including two signed headshots and two limited-edition Tim Allen Tool Kits for the lucky winner. 

 During the month of August, the Waterpik® Charity Auction features a piece designed by the four-time Emmy-nominated Mayim Bialik, best known for her lead role in the NBC show Blossom and more recently as Amy Farrah Fowler in the CBS hit comedy The Big Bang Theory.

 Suzanne Carranza, Senior Marketing Manager for Waterpik® Consumer Oral Health said, “Hope Lives is an amazing charitable organization in Colorado where Waterpik® is headquartered. The charity does so much for women in Colorado, providing not only emotional support, but a full complementary care program to help breast cancer survivors manage their daily routines. Waterpik® supports Hope Lives throughout the year through sales of our Pink Designer Series Water Flossers. This celebrity auction is one more way for us to do our part to help.”

I Am The Proud Author Of This Campaign 

I wrote this for Waterpik. The campaign appears on the Waterpik website. I interviewed each dental hygienist over a two week period. I loved this assignment because each dental hygienist was passionate about his or her work and eager to educate. Each conversation lasted one hour. I learned a lot and wanted to share the info with you.
