Question
There is a new toothbrush called "30 second smile"

  (power toothbrush that is supposed to clean 6 surfaces
at a time.  Company is in Van Nuys, Cal.)
   Have you heard of this?   Price is $90

Their phone is (800)431-1902          I'm trying to
get some information.          ?   ?

Answer
There are lots of tooth brushes on the market. I have seen most patients with a history of gum/periodontal problems do very well with the
oral-b/braun. This is backed by research. Remember, good technique is needed no matter what you use. Good luck.
