SpinBrush™ makes electric toothbrush technology affordable
The Crest SpinBrush™ is an easy-to-use, battery-operated toothbrush that gives families the efficacy of an electric toothbrush at manual toothbrush prices.
Designed with a combination of high-quality Dupont oscillating and stationary bristles, it is highly effective for cleaning teeth and removing plaque. The combination of bristles also allows people to use the manual toothbrush motion they're used to while getting the enhanced benefits of an electric toothbrush.

Professional Crest Whitestrips available
Procter & Gamble recently announced an exclusive offering to dentists — new Professional Crest White-strips — that will provide even stronger results than the kit available for sale directly to consumers.
The Professional Crest Whitestrips kit will include a three-week supply of strips (vs. two for original Whitestrips), an increased level of peroxide, new Crest Dual-Action Whitening Toothpaste, and a Crest Complete Extra Soft toothbrush to keep new stains from forming.
P&G launched its national consumer advertising campaign last month, geared toward the Crest Whitestrips and the Professional Crest Whitestrips. Crest will be partnering with dentists in a number of ways. They include the dentist finder — the Crest Whitestrips Internet site allows visitors to identify dentists offering professional-strength Crest Whitestrips kits. Crest positions Crest Whitestrips as one of many whitening options available to dentists and patients, saying it is 10 times better than the leading whitening toothpaste. P&G also will be providing a wide variety of tools to help professionals build their whitening practices, including continuing education on whitening and practice management.
