Positive testimonials have also been pouring in, including this one from a mom in West Virginia, who wrote:
"Dr Wright,I just wanted to let you know that we received our toothpaste yesterday and my oldest is loving it! I actually have had to tell him "no you can not brush your teeth again" lol. Thanks so much for sending it our way."
It's tricky when you work for almost twelve years on a product. You stay up past midnight working on prototypes and drawings, all the while thinking, "Am I crazy thinking this will actually work? Am I just wasting my time?"
Well, whew! It takes such a load off of our minds to know that Vortex is really getting kids excited about brushing their teeth.
Now it's just a matter of getting the word out, so a special thanks to the Sunset Hills-Crestwood Patch, who recently interviewed Vortex inventor Dr. Wright. The article can be found here: Retired Dentist Invents Color Changing Toothpaste.
In the article, Dr. Wright dropped a couple of hints about his long-term dreams for Vortex Toothpaste:
"There are plans for other toothpaste colors in the future—the two obvious ones being yellow and blue to make green. Wright wants to call them Popsicle Orange and Wild Apple. He also wants to have an adult version with whiteners and breath fresheners.
Vortex currently retails for $6.95 and is manufactured in a plant located in Muskegon, MI. Wright hopes to mass produce the toothpaste, which will lower the cost.
'I wake up with dreams of big manufacturers. I’ve sold more toothpaste than I ever dreamed,' Wright said. 'Ten years is a long time to spend fighting for your product. But if you truly believe in your invention, the fight is exhilarating.' "
Exciting! Thanks, Sunset Hills-Crestwood Patch!
