Audrey Gelman 
“I got these Morihata charcoal toothbrushes at Coming Soon, one of my favorite female-owned small businesses; they sell a million great things, but I recently bought these to make my dental routine feel a little more dynamic.” — The Strategist, February 2018

André Leon Talley
“This wonderful toothbrush is battery operated and spins, but it’s not that expensive. It’s a must-have. I buy a new one once a month. That’s what you’re supposed to do. I know they sell the replacement brush heads, but you’re not supposed to keep these toothbrushes forever. I’ve used other battery-operated toothbrushes — Brauns and things — but I like Arm & Hammer because I trust the brand. I use the baking soda in the refrigerator to trap odors. I use the laundry detergent when I can find it.” — The Strategist, October 2016

Matt Walsh
“This vibrating toothbrush was a revelation in my life. I find it makes your teeth cleaner and it feels like you have technology on your side, running around inside your mouth killing all those cavities. You can also take it on the road for weekend travel, no need to bring the charger — it’s good for several days. It’s a counterbalance to my junk-food fixation.” — The Strategist, March 2019

Jessica Alba
“This may sound weird, but I found my first electric toothbrush to be absolutely life-changing, heavenly cleanliness.” — InStyle, June 2017

Ryan Reynolds
“I like that Oral-B thing, the electric one that spins. That’s the one I use.” — GQ, February 2019
