The Good

  • Use of Experts and Clinical Data
  • Environmentally Conscious
  • Excellent Marketing Strategies
  • Customer Subscription Set-Up
  • Discounts and Promotions
  • Thoughtful Consumer Design

Use of Experts and Clinical Data

Burst Oral Care has set up an ambassador program where it invites dental professionals to give insight into what customers need the most and gives invaluable data and suggestions to Burst’s team. These dental professionals get heavily discounted products to try out and give feedback on. After they rate the products, Burst reimburses the original purchase price as a way of saying thank you.

If the dental professional chooses to sell Burst products in their office, they earn cash rewards and can offer cheaper pricing for their patients to buy products in the office. This is a win-win model that offers revenue streams for the dental office and Burst and provides Burst valued feedback. This research model could be considered labor intensive, but it seems that Burst is willing to put in the legwork for this direct, raw data from experts to be able to provide better products. 

Environmentally Conscious

Burst has lofty goals when it comes to providing effective and healthy oral care products for its customers and staying environmentally conscious. Burst uses recyclable packaging and adheres to ethical manufacturing processes in production. It uses ingredients in its products that are as natural as possible while making sure they are effective and safe for consumers. We appreciate it offers safe options for the planet and customers where it can. 

Excellent Marketing Strategies

Burst uses a stream of marketing tactics and it looks to have paid off. It uses celebrity endorsements, social media, Burst’s Ambassador Program, and published articles in popular magazines including Forbes, Business Insider, and Cosmopolitan

Customer Subscription Set-Up

Burst offers its products through a subscription program. This is a smart option for consumers who want things to show up at their door without having to think about it. Some consumers may not prefer this set-up as they prefer to order as they need. Burst offers discounted pricing when customers sign up for its subscription service. Having the subscription service as an option benefits company earnings and caters to the consumer who appreciates the convenience of delivery around the time they will need to reorder. 

Discounts and Promotions

Burst has found a way to reach those consumers who want to get an extra deal on everything. The company offers promotions and discount codes on top of sales it runs through its website. These codes seem to be readily available with an online search to help with the cost. 

Thoughtful Consumer Design

Burst’s Sonic Toothbrush, which is its most popular product, was designed with the consumer in mind. It has a two-minute timer and can hold a charge for a month. Research shows Burst’s Sonic Toothbrush is 10 times more effective at removing plaque than a manual toothbrush. It is affordable and cheaper than most comparable brushes on the market.

The Bad

  • Charging Challenges
  • Subscription Issues

Charging Challenges

There are many consumer reports of the charging capacity of this popular toothbrush not being on par with what is advertised. Many consumers have taken advantage of Burst’s lifetime warranty by reaching out to customer service and getting a replacement.  

Subscription Issues

Some of Burst’s customers claim that the subscription service often would send extra items at an additional cost along with the original subscription item. This may or may not be a glitch in Burst’s system, but still, an annoyance that customers need to take the time to work out with customer service. Consumers enjoy the convenience of a subscription on commonly used products but if they consistently deal with unauthorized charges, it negates having a service that is supposed to make life easier.

The Bottom Line

Burst Oral Care may be a good fit for you if you are looking for a more affordable electric toothbrush option that comes with a great warranty. Many of Burst’s products have thousands of positive customer reviews and come highly recommended by dental professionals.

For those who appreciate a subscription service, Burst can send you all the dental supplies you need on the timetable you prefer and gives you an extra discount on those items.  We appreciate that Burst gives a 90-day money-back guarantee to customers who aren’t completely satisfied with its products.

Burst was born to transform oral care as we know it! Because everybody brushes their teeth, but nobody’s really given us a reason to think twice about it. It’s oral care. . . minus the care. And we think that’s unacceptable!

So we turned to the pros for help! Burst ambassadors (dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants) have a say in how we design our products. Simply put, the pros talk and we listen!

All of our products are designed with purpose, inspired by real people and guided by pros. Burst is backed by clinical data and is vegan and cruelty-free.

A welcoming, young, hip brand. The packaging was personal by giving a backstory of who they are and why I'm important to them as a customer. I love their fun and light-heartedness that clearly comes across even in the instructions. I recently purchased the toothbrush, water flosser and whitening trays. So far, my favorite is the water flosser as it gives a new take on "flossing" which has been fun to use.

I received a bundle set as a gift. I love it! The rose gold is so pretty and sets my toothbrush apart from my family's nicely. My teeth feel so clean and smooth afterwards. I am prone to cavities, so a healthy clean mouth is very important to me. Can't wait to buy more for the rest of the family!

I'm so glad I made the switch to this toothbrush! The difference I feel is amazing. I bought this initially because of the 2 minute timer since I feel like I always rushed through brushing and needed better discipline. The difference I've seen with my teeth has been the best thing yet.

I love my Burst toothbrush! I love the charcoal bristles, color and the travel case. I had a Sonicare toothbrush prior to my Burst, and I like the Burst better. And bonus - the replacement brush heads are cheaper and are delivered right to my door!

I love a company that cares about customer service and BURST has the best cs experience I have ever gotten from a company. They have great products and really stand behind them. I love that they are used and recommended by actual dental professionals too!
