Dear Dr. Ellie
I am a registered Dental Hygienist, and I am interested in your zellies toothbrush.


Dear A
Thanks so much for your message. I am glad you are interested in zellies toothbrushes. We would be prepared to give you a good price on a larger quantity.

You may be interested in the story behind Zellies toothbrushes: As a long-time dentist I had a selection of toothbrushes given to me by various oral care companies. I wanted to know which ones were the best. I also wanted to know how people could brush their teeth with the really cheap toothbrushes available in stores. So, I purchased some from stores and used the others that I had been given. In all, I think we had about 30 different kinds of brushes in our "study".

My husband and I own a restaurant in Rochester New York . We had about 70 employees at the time. Every employee was given two different brushes to use for a couple of weeks at a time : did they like this one, or this one? This was repeated over and over - handing out different combinations of brushes and recording the results.

This study of toothbrushes continued for close to a year! We finally came down to two toothbrushes in the final round. This was the birth of the " Zellies toothbrush"! It is a combination of the two "finalist" brushes.

I hope you like the brushes, let me know how we can help you in the future.
Many thanks,
Dr. Ellie Phillips
