Finding Genius Podcast

Nov 28, 2021

Despite impeccable oral hygiene practices, some of us can’t seem to avoid getting cavities, while others who could brush and floss a little more never develop any.

It seems backwards, but there might be a good answer for it…one that promises better preventive oral health for all.

Tune in to discover:

  • About how many species of bacteria are living in your mouth at any one time
  • Clinical and behavioral risk factors for poor oral health
  • How certain pre-existing medical conditions could predispose someone to tooth decay

Rather than making that dreaded visit to the dentist and hearing that there’s more work to be done, Danny Grannick, CEO & Co-Founder of Bristle, proposes a new alternative: taking a simple at-home oral microbiome test that provides a clear and easy-to-understand picture of your oral health.

By analyzing tons of complex genomic data and boiling it down to a few simple scores, consumers can better understand their oral health and receive personalized recommendations for dealing with and/or preventing cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.

It’s an exciting new product that has the potential to revolutionize oral healthcare as we know it—and all it takes is a small saliva sample.
