Dental Health Startup, ONVI, Debuts First Ever Smart Video Toothbrush

Live video feed empowers people to track and improve their oral
healthcare routine

a pioneer in innovative dental technology based in Chicago, today
announced the launch of the first ever video toothbrush, Prophix,
empowering people to track and improve their oral healthcare routine.
The company’s premier product, Prophix pairs wirelessly to an iOS app*
using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, allowing people to better see and understand
their current oral health status while they brush.

ONVI founder Dr. Craig S. Kohler, D.D.S., M.B.A., M.A.G.D., is among the
few dentists in the country that, for more than 20 years, has been using
live video to record his dental procedures through microscopes,
delivering premium care for his patients. His commitment to providing
the best care for his patients using the most current technology
motivated him to develop Prophix.

“As I used intraoral cameras and monitors to treat my patients, I saw
how it helped them to better understand the status of their oral health,
and in turn, adopt better cleaning habits,” said Dr. Kohler, founder and
CEO, ONVI. “With today’s advancements in technology, it is finally
possible to bring this never-before-seen dental solution into the home
with Prophix.”

With Prophix, people are able to watch a live video feed that reveals
the spots they miss as they brush. Consumers can also take and save
pictures of areas of concern or interest, track their progress and see
trends in their usage over time. Prophix also provides motivating tips
to improve overall oral health care habits.

In addition, Prophix is sold with four interchangeable attachments to
help consumers get the most out of their at-home cleaning routine:

  • A rotating toothbrush
  • A prophy cup, similar to what a dental hygienist uses for contour
    cleaning around the tooth and under the gum line
  • A rubber tip to massage your gums, increase blood flow, and remove
    plaque and tartar, contributing to better gum health
  • A mirror to see those hard-to-reach places

Prophix is scheduled to ship in the first quarter of 2017, and is now
available for pre-order at a discounted price of $299 (retail price of
$399). For shipping updates or to pre-order, visit

*App is currently compatible with iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s,
and iPhone 5. Android app is in development.
