Win a Philips Sonicare rechargeable power toothbrush for kids worth R899

March 16, 2015

It’s World Oral Health Day on Friday (March 20th), and while every day should involve oral care, it’s a good day to highlight some health tips, plus an opportunity to maybe win something… like a Philips Sonicare rechargeable powerbrush worth R899.


The Sonicare, for kids aged four and up, is cool because

  • It’s 75% more effective in hard-to-reach places than manual toothbrushes
  • It has a KidTimer gradually increases to 2 minutes to train kids to brush longer
  • It has high and low power modes for gentle yet effective cleaning
  • It has 8 cool design stickers + 2 bonuc sticker sheets for a fun and customised brush

New Sonicare for Kids - Pack Shot


The theme for World Oral Health Day on 20 March is “Smile for Life”. Here are some tips from IVOhealth’s oral hygiene expert Dirna Grobbelaar to keep your family smiling healthily.

1.     Brush correctly twice a day – the Philips Sonicare is clinically proven to gently remove more plaque than a manual brush.

2.     Brush for a full two minutes each time – the new Philips Sonicare For Kids has a built-in timer to help your children learn how long to brush.

3.     Clean in-between the teeth every day – this should start as soon as the teeth start to touch one another, usually from around age two.

4.     Find an interdental tool that suits your mouth and lifestyle – floss, an interdental brush, an oral irrigator or the Philips Sonicare AirFloss, which jets a microburst of air and water between the teeth at 72 km/h.

5.     Gently clean the tongue to remove plaque and food debris – look for specially designed tools.

6.     For extra fresh breath confidence older children and adults can swish with an alcohol-free mouthwash like Dentyl Active.

7.     Have a professional clean by an oral hygienist every six months and see the dentist each year.

8.     Eat a healthy, balanced diet avoiding sugary foods and drinks.

To enter to win

Simply comment below, and your name will go into a draw. The giveaway is open to South African residents only, and closes on Friday 20 March at 9am, after which the winner will be announced on the Rattle and Mum Facebook page, and then emailed.

For more oral care tips visit or chat to your dentist or oral hygienist.

The Philips Sonicare is available from DisChem and some dentists.

    My 2 little ones had “cool” brushes that they really loved and then they loved brushing twice without hassles…..until they left them at a camping site and were sad 🙁 for days. Unfortunately mummy hasn’t afforded another set of the “cool” brushes again but mummy is glad that they are still brushing as they should along to a tune (to ensure they brush properly) – and twice a day!
