"We know that power brushes provide an overall better brushing experience but they still lag behind in popularity and everyday usage"
CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This weekend marks the kick-off to Oral-B’s road trip across America, as
it proves that even residents on Manual Street will not go back to their
manual brush once they’ve experienced the “WOW” of the Deep Sweep power
For many people, using a manual toothbrush is an unquestioned, lifelong
aspect of their daily routines. But anecdotal evidence indicates that
once people try a power brush, they are hard-pressed to go back to their
manual version. This insight sparked the idea for this summer’s town
takeovers in which Oral-B is challenging people throughout the country
to rethink the way they brush.
“We know that power brushes provide an overall better brushing
experience but they still lag behind in popularity and everyday usage,”
said Rishi Dhingra, Marketing Director, Procter and Gamble. “So we’re
providing opportunities for consumers to experience the ‘WOW’ feeling

Each of the towns selected for takeovers all have one thing in common –
they are home to the aptly named “Manual Street.” The town takeover
events will offer food, music and fun for the whole family, and of

brush for a new Oral-B Deep Sweep power brush. The events will take
place in the following cities this summer:
Upcoming Oral-B Town Takeovers
June 29 – Erath, LA
July 28 – Bainbridge Island, WA
August 10 – Stanford, KY
August 17 – Carroll County, VA

The Oral-B Deep Sweep power brush makes the transition from a manual
brush to a power brush easy, with a familiar-shaped brush head coupled
with traditional stationary bristles. Deep sweeps in between teeth
remove up to 100 percent more plaque versus a regular manual toothbrush,
helping to prevent and reverse gingivitis.
