Philips Sonicare has launched Sonicare For Kids, the first Sonicare power toothbrush for pediatric patients.  Sonicare For Kids is designed for parents to teach children to brush effectively and then transition them to independent brushing.

Sonicare For Kids has a handle designed to fit in a child’s hand, and includes two gripping locations so kids can brush with an adult during training and then transition to independent brushing when they are ready. Brush heads are available in two sizes to help accommodate the child’s oral development.

The brush has two power modes that are 60% and 40% less powerful than Sonicare FlexCare. A KidTimer function progressively increases the brushing duration over the course of 90 days, and the musical tones of the KidPacer technology indicate when it is time to move to another quadrant of the mouth.
The suggested retail price for Philips Sonicare for Kids is $69.99 and it will be available to consumers in September. It will be carried at Target and and will be available through select dental offices.
