Oral IQ: Smart products for your oral health and beyond.
In the spring of 2020, as the world was becoming all-too-acquainted with Covid-19 and the stay-at-home quarantine it necessitated, access to essential oral healthcare was scarce. A group of Los Angeles dentists and medical professionals came together to form Oral IQ™ (or OQ for short) to bring safe and effective at-home oral care solutions to market, helping people maintain their oral health from the convenience of home.
In the following months, OQ debuted several effective and easy-to-use products like OQpik™, a sonic wave tooth cleaner, and PBM Light™, an advanced Red and Infrared Light Therapy (RLT) device for pain relief, muscle recovery and reduction of inflammation. PBM is short for PhotoBioModulation, a form of beneficial light therapy that improves the tissue’s ability to repair itself while promoting healing and reducing painful inflammation. PBM Light carries with it the same benefits as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), providing a safe and easy way for consumers to bridge the gap between clinical visits and at-home self care. Oral IQ is committed to the bringing innovative, effective and easy-to-use products to market while helping to make red light therapy both accessible and affordable to the general public.
