The Brush Buddies family includes a dog, cat, cow, pig, and monkey. Each has characteristics that kids and parents should enjoy. Colorful Brush Buddies characters talk to a playful melody that, when activated, plays for the recommended brush time of two minutes.

“Brush Buddies allow kids to chose the character that really fits their personality,” said Anish Patel, CEO of Ashtel Dental. “We’ve heard from parents that their kids can’t wait to brush their teeth with Brush Buddies.”

Brush Buddies aim to educate kids on healthy brushing habits, in addition to making the task more fun. The voice recording of each character features an animated voice that guides kids through proper brushing of each section of their teeth, starting with the upper teeth, then switching to the lower teeth after the first minute. Finally, the voice ends with an encouraging message of praise for a job well done.

The new toothbrushes are scheduled to be released in January 2011. Each character brush can be purchased through dental product retailers and select dentist offices and online at
