Necessities for a White Smile
Give dads’ pearly whites the royal treatment with these dental essentials.


Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Black Edition (HX9352), RRP

Available at major department stores, leading electronics stores and selected authorised dealers.


Give dad something to smile about and introduce him to one of the most stylish, sophisticated and innovative electrical toothbrushes on the market today - the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Black Edition. It is clinically proven to remove up to 100 per cent of plaque1  from hard-to-reach places  compared to a manual toothbrush, improve gum health in only two weeks and whiten teeth in one week2. The revolutionary brush is able to deliver a unique whole mouth clean thanks to its five brushing experiences allowing dad to tailor his brushing according to his needs, as well as his dental professional’s advice. It also comes with a charging USB travel case and nifty glass that charges the device.



Philips Sonicare AirFloss (HX8111 / HX8211), RRP $179.
Available at major department stores, leading electronics stores and selected authorised dealers.


If dad usually doesn’t tend to spend much time flossing his teeth in the bathroom then the Sonicare AirFloss is the perfect gift this Father’s Day. With a nozzle guidance tip for targeted cleaning and a simple one-button operation, dad’s morning and night rituals can be shorter, allowing him to clean his entire mouth in less than a minute3 with only one teaspoon of water. It works by using microburst technology, a rapid burst of air and water to penetrate the space between teeth, helping to force plaque out. The Philips Sonicare AirFloss is an easy and effective way to clean in-between teeth that will make the hassle he associates with traditional flossing a thing of the past.
