I have been a fan of Indigogo and Kickstarter for the last couple of years and have invested in some good products and some not-so-good products. I have a Twicycle (https://twicycle.com) and Ice Plate – The DIY At Home Ice Cream Roll Maker on its way. They also have a lot of devices to help you do things better, like a self-making bed.  Two things recently caught my eye, an automatic toothbrush and teeth whitener and a Tooth Shower for oral care while you are showering. I am considering the automatic toothbrush / teeth whitener. 

Hopefully we could convince some of our diabetes patients to get one of these devices as our intern Lamija Zimic, PharmD(c), University of South Florida, College of Pharmacy, found out when she wrote this week’s Item number # 3 on how improved periodontal care can lower your A1c more than 0.5% and your fasting by 18 mg/dl.
