The Quip Toothbrush, found online at GetQuip.com, is a new toothbrush that promises that it has been designed with the goal of providing people with the simplest and most effective way to manage their oral health. 

How Does It Work?

According to their website, the makers of the Quip Toothbrush realized that there were so many products on the market that were intended to improve people’s oral health, when the truth is that the problems that create most issues in modern day oral health are the same problems that have always been at the root of oral health problems: not brushing often enough, not flossing, brushing too hard, and using too many harsh products on your teeth and gums.

They realized that people didn’t need a more complicated oral health routine, they needed a less complicated routine that actually helped people solve the real problems they were experiencing. 

The Quip Toothbrush is designed to encourage the healthiest habits. The first way they do this is to have their toothbrush vibrate at 30 second intervals for two full minutes so that you know how long you are brushing your teeth and do it for the right length of time every time. Another problem is that people don’t replace their toothbrush as often as they should, which is why every customer is enrolled in a three month toothbrush head refill program so you will have access to new, fresh bristles each time you need them. 

 

Another problem for many people is forgetting to bring their toothbrush when they are on the go, but Quip solves this by designing the holding case to double as a travel case – all you have to do is flip your toothbrush and slide the bristles into the case and throw it into your bag or your purse.   

Cost/Price Plans

The Quip website actually provides many different options for purchasing your Quip Toothbrush. The website says that their options begin at $25 for a single toothbrush with a plastic handle or $40 for a single toothbrush with a metal handle and go up to $150 for a Family set of four toothbrushes. The refill program begins at $5 every three months for just a single brush head, but goes up in price for the number of toothbrushes you have in your home.  

Refund Policy

The website says that they do accept returns within 30 days of your date of purchase if you are not satisfied with your purchase. Customers will be responsible for the cost of shipping their product back, unless they choose to use the Quip pre-paid shipping, in which case the cost of shipping will be deducted from your refund after your return has been processed.

Reputation

Though their does not appear to be very many customer reviews for this product at this time, there does seem to be a good number of reviews from technology and health blogs, all of which seem to love this new product.

These reviews genuinely enjoy the simplicity of the Quip Toothbrush and its affordability, saying that it really does what it claims to – reminds people to brush for two minutes, brush often, and to brush gently to avoid gum damage. At this time, it seems as though this product is a really good choice for people who are interested in improving their oral care. 

Competitors and Alternatives?

As mentioned by this product’s website, there are certainly many, many different electric toothbrushes on the market, as well as hundreds of regular manual toothbrushes, and different flossing products. The reality is that everyone must find the brushing and flossing routine which works best for them, which is really the message of the Quip company.

PKAYING FAST AND LOOSE WITH THE DEFINITION OF “ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH”
January 8, 2019

Have you heard commercial spots for QUIP toothbrushes?

Don’t fall for this scam until you’ve done some digging. I had heard these spots on some podcasts and, when my old $125 Sonicare gave up the ghost, I figured, what the heck, and spent $45 on a QUIP and a year’s worth of refills.

The toothbrush arrived. I was intrigued. How could such a seemingly compact and elegantly-designed electric toothbrush, be as efficient as my old Sonicare?

When I used it for the first time, I thought there was some kind of a mistake. It buzzed, but didn’t really seem to do much. I ended up brushing normally with it, while it buzzed faintly and merrily away. This lasted for about a week’s worth of brushings, and then I realized that even used with normal brushing motions, the brush itself wasn’t really doing a good job. The bristles were too soft and the head small.

The toothpaste that QUIP provides is unusually abrasive and has a strange foreign, chemical flavor and odd aftertaste.

My first theory was that the extra abrasive toothpaste was provided in order to assist the weak motor to do its job.

At that point I started reading up on QUIP.

Note that the ads are misleading. You think you’re getting a compact electric toothbush with all sorts of cool features (portability, multipurpose case, no charger required, runs on 2 AAA batteries for 3 months, etc.) In fact, though earlier ad spots didn’t call it an electric toothbrush, they were carefully-worded to give that impression. The ad I heard toda, OTOH, actually called it an electric toothbrush.

Well, yes, it is. It’s a toothbrush, though an inefficient one, to say the least. And, it uses batteries to make something inside vibrate. But it plays fast and loose with our preconceptions of what exactly constitutes an “electric toothbrush”.

Here’s what I discovered upon reading up on QUIP. QUIP is not an electric toothbrush in the sense of Sonicare and its competitors. In fact, it’s a non-powered toothbrush. The vibrating feature is merely a TIMER, which interrupts every 30 seconds like a Sonicare, to tell you to switch your brushing area.

Nothing more, nothing less, although QUIP would like you to believe otherwise.

Additionally, the toothpaste is made in India. I’m not casting aspersions on the toothpaste industry in India, but instead mentioning why it tastes strange to American taste buds.

Don’t waste your money. QUIP is a SCAM.

The toothbrush itself works well. It is designed to fail. To change the brush heads you bend the head backwards until it " Breaks off". I did this three times and then the handle would no longer support the head. Request for a replacement went without reply. They're one year warranttee seems to be a joke. It is a scheme or a scam. I not have 7 replacement brushes and no handle.

Don't Be Fooled - This is Not an Upgrade to Your Vibrating Brush
January 30, 2018

I feel ripped off.

The Quip website pages make it seem like the smallest vibrating toothbrush ever invented but after getting it and seeing just how little it moves I decided to look into it more. That was when I found the real story of how it is only vibrating to help you time the brush session. Only after I made the purchase – like, I am sure, so many other people do. Quip should be ashamed of themselves for not making things clear up front- but then they have to hide the facts or no one would ever buy their fake vibrating brush.

I don’t need to pay for a subscription to remind me how long 2 minutes is… or to remind me to change heads… or to pester me with useless advertisement emails that remind me what a waste of money I have made.

The Quip website states: “Unfortunately there have been many misconceptions about what makes an effective toothbrush, born from misleading advertising over the years. “

This is a true statement AND Quip continues to be part of those misconceptions.

Ugh, I agree with you James! I bought this to regulate how much force I'm putting into brushing to reduce gum line recession. But upon use, I felt SO cheated!! I also thought they are USB rechargeable...but rather, it's 3 AAA batteries. A waste all around.
