automatic toothbrush Amabrush

The latest development in dental technology is a toothbrush that claims to have your mouth perfectly cleaned in just 10 seconds! This sounds like a real-time saver compared to the recommended 2 minutes our dentist tells us to do. Amabrush is currently in the presale phase on Kickstarter with shipping beginning in December 2017. Learn more about this automatic toothbrush and how it might possibly change the entire toothbrush industry.

Fast and Effective

This unique device brushes all your teeth at once with bristles that cover every corner of your teeth. It kills 99.9% of bacteria and can be used with braces and dental prosthesis. It’s simple to use: you just place it in your mouth, turn it on, and in 10 seconds, your teeth are completely clean. It also requires the use of their special toothpaste capsules that are placed in the brush giving you the perfect amount every time. The capsules are available different types: extra fresh, whitening, and sensitive (fluoride-free) and they should last for a month at only €3 per capsule.

Benefits Compared to What’s Currently on the Market

By switching to the Amabrush, you would save 100 days of your life brushing your teeth. In addition, the mouth piece that goes to the brush is cheap to replace, only €6 which is like the cost of a manual toothbrush and significantly cheaper than other electric toothbrush heads. In addition, the Amabrush’s battery lasts for a month compared to regular electric toothbrushes that last for about a week.

How Can This Change the Industry?

This automatic toothbrush is more cost efficient than leading electronic toothbrushes in addition to time saving. Its studies show it brushes teeth and prevents periodontal disease just as well as other toothbrush options, it would be no surprise that this becomes the leading selling toothbrush on the market. The development team is working closely with dentists and dental universities to ensure the toothbrush provides results up to the standards of other toothbrushes. This product will appeal to anyone who skips brushing their teeth at night because they’re “too tired” and to people who hate brushing their teeth in general. Dentists will most likely recommend it to patients who tend to miss spots in their mouth when they brush, or the ones who frequently skip brushing.

AwDA website compliance CDA

The California Dental Association (CDA) has been receiving calls from members worried if their websites are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (AwDA). Many dentists are questioning whether their websites are compliant, how they find out, and what steps they need to take to make sure they are. In response, the CDA Practice Support has added a section about website accessibility. At Practice Affiliate, we want our California dental clients to be sure their website isn’t shut down for not being compliant with the AwDA.

If you are a dentist in California, on the CDA website on the Practice Support webpage, information about the federal law, guidelines for both state and federal physical accessibility standards, any requirements for communication with hearing-impaired patients, in addition to many Q and A’s for additional resources and other guidance.

The Americans with Disabilities Act was put into place in July 1990 to guarantee people with disabilities access to places of public accommodations. It also prohibits discrimination of disabilities in public accommodations, employment, government, education, telecommunications, transportation, and telecommunications. The ADA claims that recently, the Texas Dental Association reported that several of its members received demand letters from attorneys alleging that their websites violated the AwDA.

As a precautionary, the CDA is recommending that all dentists in California verify that their website is compliant with the AwDA so that their websites are not shut down and they are not breaking the law. Go to the CDA website and see if your website is breaking any guidelines or standards. It’s important that these problems are addressed immediately before this law is enforced more like in Texas.

Is Your Website Breaking Guidelines? Contact Us

We recommend our clients view the guidelines and standards provided by the CDA and if they find that their website is violating anything, to please contact us at Practice Affiliate. We will work with our website designers and team to ensure your website complies to the AwDA and that you do not need to worry about this in the future.
