Walgreens 50 Tuft Dobson Large Head Toothbruth

Register with us in one easy step!

The biggest toothbrush I've EVER seen!

Today (June 04 '07) I picked up the Walgreens 50 Tuft Dobson Large Head Toothbruth.

This thing is HUGE! It's $2.79 and covers 1/3 of my mouth!

Now, the dentists tell you to brush for 2 minutes. They even have toothbruthes that do the time for you. (a wonderful Oral-B that I picked up for $30 a few years back has a 2 minute timer on it - it stops after two minutes).

But with this brush, I think you could cut it down to 1 MINUTE.

Being that the head is so big, you don't have to apply so much pressure to your teeth. Just brush gently back and forth a few times for each 1/3 of the mouth.

There's 12 steps. If you take 5 seconds on each section, that's 5 x 12 or one minute. If you take 10 seconds per section, that's two minutes.

Very gentle toothbruth. The closest thing I've seen like it elsewhere is called the Radius brush and it's $60.

This thing is inexpensive and it works. I don't know how long Walgreens will carry it for, but they're the only ones that have it that I could find online.

Check it out! I got it from the Walgreens by Immokalee & 951 (Collier Blvd). It's down at the bottom shelf where the toothbrushes are.

I'll give it 5 stars so far - first impressions.

I'll give a status update a few weeks from now.

It's been a couple of months.

I STILL use the toothbrush and love it.

It's been holding up rather well and my teeth are clean.

I have been using this toothbrush for many years. However, Walgreens does not sell them anymore. The proper name for this brush is a Dobson large head toothbrush. Do you know where I can purchase them? Thanks

Ah! Walgreen's still sells them but only online:

Best I can find so far. That stinks - We'll each have to order a couple of them!!

I bought one yesterday in Walgreen's in Manhattan. There was only one for sale. I had a dental appt today: I brought it in its original package to my dentist. He had never heard of it. I asked him if he thought it was meant to brush dentures, or for horses, or if he could see any downside to using it. He said none of those seemed likely.

They ARE available instore at Walgreens. They've been available at Walgreens in my area (Olympia-Lacey-Tumwater, Wash. State) for quite a long while as I've seen them on sale there for a number of years. I bought one just last week at Walgreen's in Tumwater, WA.
