Our Family Is Taking the 30-Day #SonicareChallenge

by Tara Kuczykowski on July 21, 2010 · 11 comments

Well, I certainly can't say that I ever expected to post a picture on here of me brushing my teeth...but yes, that's me -- brushing me teeth.

Our family was recently selected to participate in the Sonicare 30 Days to Better Teeth Challenge, so we'll be test driving the new Sonicare 2 Handle 5350 Sonic Power Toothbrush and the Sonicare for Kids HX6311/02 Rechargeable Toothbrush courtesy of Sonicare and Collective Bias.

So what are some benefits that we can expect to see over the next 30 days?

  • Sonicare’s technology provides superior plaque removal, because it cleans in a way that a manual toothbrush can’t.
  • Philips Sonicare reduces gum disease, but at the same time, it’s gentle on your teeth and gums.
  • Sonicare removes everyday coffee, tea and tobacco stains. So your teeth will be naturally whiter in 28 days or your money back.

Follow along in my Whrrl story as we purchase our brushes, get them setup, and use them for the first time:

Of course I had to buy my 2-year-old his own special Diego toothbrush. The Sonicare for Kids is intended for ages 4 and up, but I didn't want him to miss out on all of the fun!

My husband and I have been using a Sonicare toothbrush for 5+ years and we love it.

I was recently able to test drive the kids toothbrush also, and my 7 year old loves it (and I do too). I agree about additional choices for the faceplates. My son loved the choices, because they all are kind of "space" themed, but girls may not appreciate it as much.

Who knew you and your family could look so cute brushing your teeth :-).

How do you sign up to get selected? My husband bought one of these for our son but I made him take it back because it was so expensive. My husband and I love our Sonic toothbrushes but I'm not ready to fork out the money for the kids.

It through Collective Bias, Eleaves.

I have been using a Sonic Care brush for almost 10 years now and won't go back to a manual brush for anything. Yes, they are expensive and the replacement heads are expensive also but I have had an extensive amount of dental work and this brush does the job I need to keep my mouth healthy. I think you are really going to like it and you will notice a difference in just a short time.

I love my Sonicare Essence. My dentist had been bugging me to get one for a couple of years. Last month when Target had them on price cut, I had a $10 off qpn from the dentist, and a $10 mail in rebate. I decided it was time. My teeth have never felt so clean! I cannot wait to get everyone else in the house one.

Tara- Only you could rock a picture like that and make it look good! :)

Hi Tara, Mercedes wrote that there is a $5 Phillips Sonicare Essence or Sonicare for Kids Model Toothbrush Mail-In Rebate..... WHERE? I just purchased the Sonicare Kids Toothbrush, and I can't seem to locate a rebate.

Thank you!

You can find the rebate form on this thread

I agree the are great toothbrushes, I did a Bzzagent deal and got one free several years ago, I loved it and have continued using it. Your teeth will love it.

I just recently purchased a Sonicare toothbrush. Using this brush is so much better than using a regular brush. I'll never go back!
