On June 26, 1498, the earliest known toothbrush came into existence. It was invented in China, and was initially made from stiff, coarse hog hair affixed to bone or bamboo handles. In 1938, Dupont de Nemours invented the first toothbrushes to feature nylon bristles.
Good oral hygiene is highly valued in today’s world. As a whole, American society strives for brighter, whiter, and straighter teeth to try and emulate the star-quality smiles flashed by celebrities on the red carpet. Toothbrushes are the first item many of us reach for in the morning and the last thing we touch before going to bed, so custom imprinted toothbrushes are certain to impact the lives of your clients or employees.
Dentists, of course, often employ promotional toothbrushes as giveaways, but there are plenty of other professions that, using a creative approach, can effectively integrate dental hygiene products into their marketing mix. Any industry that requires extensive traveling, such as Consulting, should consider distributing practical items like travel toothbrushes or floss dispensers to employees or customers to increase your brand awareness.
In honor of this important day in history (and its implications for your teeth!), be extra precise with your brushing and flossing this weekend!
