CINCINNATI--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Oral-B® and celebrity comedienne and Daytime Emmy® Award-winner Sherri Shepherd are calling on power toothbrush users across the country to share their “Powerful Moment of Truth” – that instant when they switched from a manual to a power toothbrush – and its positive impact on their oral health. Sherri is revealing her “power moment” in a video testimonial available at OralB.com to help inspire others to take charge of their oral health. As part of the Oral-B “Powerful Moments of Truth” campaign, Sherri will also be sharing her “power secrets” about maintaining good dental hygiene while managing a hectic schedule.
“I had always thought that power toothbrushes were meant for people with oral health problems, but my dental hygienist recommended I use one to improve my daily oral health routine”
“I am thrilled to partner with Oral-B on this initiative,” said Sherri, co-host of the daytime talk show “The View.” “I hope my video not only entertains viewers, but also inspires them to discover their own ‘Powerful Moments of Truth.’ Like me, they’ll probably wonder why they waited so long to give power toothbrushes a try.”
With oscillating and rotating technology, Oral-B power toothbrushes (rechargeable electric toothbrushes) reach deep between teeth and along the gum line for a thorough clean, removing plaque and helping prevent gingivitis. Many people find power toothbrushes easier to use because they provide all of the brushing action, in contrast to manual toothbrushes. In addition, there is an Oral-B power toothbrush for almost everyone, since many of the toothbrushes come with brushing modes for deep cleaning, sensitivity care, whitening or gum massage.
Sherri is among the eight out of 10 Oral-B users who prefer their power toothbrush over a manual brush, and she has her own reasons why.
“I had always thought that power toothbrushes were meant for people with oral health problems, but my dental hygienist recommended I use one to improve my daily oral health routine,” continued Sherri. “Power brushes also provide all the cleaning, which is a real benefit for busy women like me who are juggling a career, marriage and motherhood.”
On Friday, September 30 at 2:00 PM (ET), Sherri will be available on the Oral-B Facebook page for a live chat to answer questions about why she made the switch from a manual to a power toothbrush, how she maintains a healthy smile and why she is partnering with Oral-B. Facebook users are encouraged to post questions on the Oral-B Facebook page in advance or during the chat, and Sherri will address as many as possible.
