Quip is an electric toothbrush startup that's also offering a subscription service in order to make the process of caring for your teeth something to look forward to rather than a chore. Quip hopes to improve upon stats that say that about 50% of people do not brush their teeth twice daily and only 25% of people replace the heads on their toothbrushes every three months.
The dental hygiene starter kit from Quip includes oral care basics like a tube of toothpaste, a toothbrush and a protective storage case. For just $5, every three months Quip will deliver a new toothbrush to you. As far as the different tiers that are offered, the starter toothbrushes range in price from $5 to $40, depending on the level of care you're looking for. Quip also sells home and travel toothpaste tubes to make its service as easy to stick to as possible.
