I do find that after a week now that my teeth seem less yellow around the gum line. I really like them.


Three months ago (07.27.2016), I went for a tooth cleaning, and I had used the Phillips Blotting Technique (PBT) brushes for a month. The Dental Hygienist found only relatively little plaque to scrape off. Yay for these PBT brushes with hollow bristles, which had sucked up a lot of my plaque by capillary action!

At that time, the Hygienist discovered that 4 teeth had developed pockets at their bases. There was also some gum bleeding — as a patient, it’s hard to quantify how much.

Yesterday (11.02.2016) — three months later — having used the PBT brushes for 4 months, I went back to the same Dental Hygienist for a cleaning. She found less plaque, and there was only slight gum bleeding. And, lo and behold, she said that the pockets had tightened up. I hadn’t even expected that!

The follow-up by the Dentist, revealed no cavities.

I can’t ask for better dental-health improvement than that! I was excited about my improvement in such a short time. I’m indebted to the PBT brushes, as I could not have achieved these good results without those brushes. As I’ve had my brushes for a little more than 4 months, now I need to order more from

And, in the process of taking better care of my teeth (which represent 10% of my mouth), I’ve gotten into the habit of gently brushing across my tongue with the larger blotting brush. Also, brushing from as far back as the “gag” area to the front, in order to get rid of any bad breath. With this larger blotting brush, I also gently brush up and down on the inside of each cheek and then over the gums, to finish cleaning the last 90% of my mouth. I’m careful to not only to rinse the brush under running water but also to knock off any debris, banging the brush hard on the edge of my sink.

Now, I walk around with a whole clean mouth, and it feels and tastes so good.

A big thank you goes to Graeme and Phylipa Dinnen who, at Resources For Life, have carried on the late Dr. Joe Phillip’s business of blotting brushes for total mouth care.

Thank you for taking so much time to answer my questions, explain things to me and for all the information. You were helpful and now I know that possibly some of my qualms about typical dental care were right. Now, I have some hope.

I’ve only been using the brush for a couple of weeks. I have teeth with hardly any gaps in between, flossing never worked properly, I got nagged by the dentist every time I went to see her. Today I went, she said, “You have absolutely no plaque at all!” I love these brushes, you can blot when watching TV or reading. It’s quite addictive! And relaxing! I am spreading the word. I tried to explain to my dentist but she wasn’t interested.

I received yesterday the brushes and already after using them once the teeth feel so smooth and clean like or even better then after cleaning them at the dentist!

I used a Blotting Brush this morning for the first time (without toothpaste), following the instructions from your book. My gums and teeth felt better than they have in ages after just one session.

I have received my brushes & LOVE them!! My teeth are cleaner than they have ever been & they seem to stay clean throughout the day.

What can I say? Simply fantastic! We are all 6 (my wife, myself and our four children) delighted with blotting our teeth instead of brushing them. Even our baby who just had her first two teeth lately! Milk teeth are, indeed, as important as permanent ones, no doubt. Our elder children spotted the difference after blotting for only a short while.

I am very pleased to have discovered your Blotting Brushes. My mouth feels really clean all day. I wish I have known about them years ago. I doubt I would have gum recession now. My daughter, aged 26 is also using them and is very pleased too. She has found regular brushing to be ineffective around wisdom teeth. We highly recommend this product for everyone.

Love the toothbrushes, they are amazing and work really well with gingivitis.

I am very pleased with the brushes which I have been using for a while and my mouth feels very clean. However, my last visit to the dental hygienist provided the proof – she said that she had never seen my mouth so clean and agreed that the brushes worked much better than floss for me

I’ve been using the Blotting Brushes now for about a month and I’m very surprised how well they work ! There is almost no plaque on my teeth and I no longer use any toothpaste or other conventional brushes anymore. My gums cling very tightly onto my teeth. I’m very happy ! I don’t have major gum or teeth problems, but I want to prevent these problems in the future.

Dr. Phillips is truly a pioneer of his time. When my family and I took his class, we did not know what to expect. What could we learn further that might help save our teeth and gums that we must already know from many years of consistent dental care in the traditional sense. We were truly in for a lifetime of knowledge on how important Blotting would be for our entire lives! Doc Phillips showed what having a CLEAN mouth could do for the life of our teeth. I now have a grown family and still – daily – practice what I learned from Dr. Phillips. I have all of my own teeth – and hopefully will continue to strive for this purpose the remainder of my years. Thank you Doc for a wealth of periodontal knowledge and lessons learned well before it became “popular” to be slightly left of center…Please continue informing a new generation how they can adequately keep their gums and mouth clean and fresh smelling also.

I’m writing to tell you how I got on with the tooth Blotting Brushes. When I read about them they seemed a strange idea, but I was ‘desperate’ to try anything that might help me. You see, for 2 or 3 years, my mouth has been so dry at night it was like the Sahara. It would wake me up at night it was so uncomfortable, and drinking water did not help. Neither did my dentist who just said “Well juices dry up as you get older (I’m 65). And every night I was scraping loads of plaque off my gums and teeth. I would never get my teeth feeling really clean. Even so I was a bit cynical, as nothing else had worked! My teeth now feel clean (bliss), my mouth is so much better at night, which means I can now sleep right through. So thank you very much, from now on I’ll be spreading the word to my family & friends.

S JoinerTruro, England

I’ve received the brushes and used the technique shown in Dr Phillips video on YouTube. I’m sure I did it far from perfectly, but I’ll keep practicing! I found the experience to be very relaxing and my mouth does feel very clean now. Thanks so much!

Thanks for your email, and useful info, the brushes have arrived and i have used them for just over a week the bleeding has just about stopped so that is great also my teeth are so mis-shappen the small brush is very useful.

June DNew Zealand

FYI the teeth left from all the yanking dentists became so strong that feel as though someone cemented them in and most all gingivitis gone. Why did I not know about it when my smile was full of my own teeth?

Mary McCloudAustralia

I feel secure in now again having a source of the Blotting Brushes… Please feel free to use my endorsement of the Blotting Brush. I am 79 years old, and I have all my teeth but one. I started using the Blotting Brush in 1976.

I just wanted to tell you that I cancelled 2 appointments with the dentist, and made an appointment with the hygienist. She said my gums were fine! Yippee… I did try to tell her why, but it fell on deaf ears. I asked her about the gums above the bridge, as I had asked your advice, and the dentist said that I should have a new bridge. But the hygienist said the gums were fine. My gums have certainly improved, and they have returned to their proper place, moving down towards the teeth. I have no bleeding and the only sensitive parts are in the middle of the bottom teeth at the back (not near the gums), so I am trying charcoal to try and re-mineralise them. I am quite sure that had I kept my appointment with the dentist, without realising that I could, in fact, do something, she would have suggested taking the next tooth out, because originally it was quite painful. Now it is strong and no pain. And a new bridge! Imagine the expense, never mind the awful feeling after extraction, which lasted for weeks.
So thank you very much for all your help and advice. Absolutely delighted!

After years of having gums that bleed every time I brush and trying different mouthwashes, brushes, flosses, tapes and pastes, I did not have much faith in anything changing, but it has.

On the first day of using there was only a tiny bit of blood when I cleaned my teeth. This has not been the case for many years. In the morning I used the blotting brush and at bed time I brushed the usual way followed by a quick blot. After just two days the blood had gone, my mouth felt fresher and was no longer sore. I have now been doing this for two weeks and still no blood. I carry a brush in my bag and no longer need to use floss.

I am trying hard not to be too evangelical but it is hard when a simple product an technique has changed my life so much. I feel it has improved, not just my mouth, but my health in general.

I have given my daughters brushes and my grand daughter. I am trying to convert everyone I know so I shall be ordering more soon.

These brushes really work! Keep up the good work.

Before I started using your brushes (about 3 months ago) my dentist (no longer) told me that I need to have all my teeth out and the gums cut by surgery to remove the affected parts. Thanks to the Blotting Brushes, my gums are now at least 70% stronger and getting better every day. This is a simple technique with such far reaching health benefits. With many thanks for your very kind help.

My husband and I are very impressed with the Blotting Brushes. My teeth have never felt so clean and smooth. It’s quite remarkable. I decided to get them after having a row with a dental hygienist who made my mouth bleed so much I was spitting out clots – not good for me! I’m an alternative healthcare therapist and I’m for a gentle natural approach to alleviate all conditions. I will be recommending the blotting brushes to everyone.


I didn’t start blotting immediately; I kept putting it off. After waking a few times with face ache, I wondered if it was from brushing bacteria into my gums and so began the Blotting Technique. Not surprisingly, it stopped the face pain (which I have had a lot of) and I haven’t had it since. My bleeding gums have also stopped as have the night sweats that I thought were menopausal or tonsil stones, so I would imagine I am saving my immune system a lot of work by adopting this excellent technique.

I had periodontal surgery 18 years ago, and at that time my surgeon started my Blotting “routine”. It takes a few minutes each day, but I have had no sign of gum disease since the surgery. Plus I have the benefit of a mouth that feels very clean, all the time. With this Blotting Brush, and the proper routine, a person can keep periodontal disease completely at bay!

Brad Richardson

I am very impressed with my blotting brushes. i was in bed late afternoon, i blotted for the first time for a couple of hours, i noticed this quite strange smell being drawn into the brush, had to get up and rinse off the brush several times. Next morning several changes were noticed, my mouth felt cleaner, a lump in my throat while swallowing had mystified me for about 10 days, today it is 95% better. Back in bed again today, resting my bad back I have reached for my brush again! Thank you for showing me the way once again.

Greville Davis

I am so happy I discovered your work to continue Dr Phillips’ work as it seems to be the answer to my gum issue. Already I am noticing a healthy change. Instead of having lots of bleeding gums and calculus, I am the opposite. Each dental check-up reveals none of that. The only problem is receding gums such that my dentist keeps warning me I am destined for expensive grafting work. Now with the blotting, my gums are healing!!! I even saw some bleeding at first where they are most recessed, but the gums are returning. My dentist will be amazed.

My husband and I find the Blotting Brushes fantastic. We’ve been oil pulling for quite a while and that has helped my tooth sensitivity but since starting with the Blotting Brushes a month ago I’ve had a huge improvement in the sensitivity and my gums have stopped bleeding. I’ve thrown out the toothpaste and changed permanently to Blotting Brushes.


When I used the Blotting Brushes for the first time, I immediately felt a moving action in my gums. Something was certainly being sucked out. It really is effective. There’s the clean feeling, too! Thank you to Dr Philips and to his family and thank you for having it re-manufactured! Cheers to the Tooth Wizards!

Christine De LeonPhilippines

Thanks for all your information- it is so helpful- I am really amazed at the brushes- I thought at first they look like those little things you get free in hotel bathrooms! but my teeth feel very clean and better somehow after using them for such a short time- your info is giving me hope that my gums can get lots better.

D.F.New Zealand

THANK YOU so much, have been blotting since I got the brushes, and have all the family on it…my teeth and gums are so much better even in the short time I have been doing it… my gums are re-growing, light pink and very healthy looking, I am over the moon.


I have been using the blotting brushes for about 6 months now. Being an ex-Dental Technician myself I’m speechless that such a simple device along with nutrient dense foods can make a huge difference. What we have been taught at University needs to be re written!! I normally visit my hygienist every six months, but there are no visible signs of plaque and my gums are nice and tight with ZERO bleeding and my breath stays fresh for much longer! I am spreading the word at every opportunity, the public needs to know ! For me it’s a no-brainer and I will continue to use the blotting brush until the day I die!

NagibBury, Lancashire

I am very pleased to tell you the results after 6 months using the blotting brushes. Since 2008, when I went to the dentist he either had to give me some antibiotics because of gingivitis or to remove the tartar that accumulated quickly on the teeth. In 2012, I have used the blotting brushes for 5 months and went to the dentist again. For the first time in five years, the dentist had absolutely nothing to do ; we were both very happy about my new mouth hygiene and the dentist wanted to know more about the blotting. Personally, I have a feeling of cleanliness after blotting (similar to the feeling after a tartar removal). The gums are much healthier than before. The only risk is to injure the gum in brushing too hard, so thanks a lot for reminder to blot as gently as possible.

The following professionals are ones who endorse the Phillips Blotting Technique and are independent consultants.

Dr. Patrick Sweeney graduated from Marquette School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI in 1974. He has been practicing general dentistry in Wisconsin for the past 30 years. He studied under Dr. J. E. Phillips for many years and embraced his philosophy on health care and the treatment of periodontal disease. Dr. Sweeney treats patients from the age of 2 to 102 and is especially proud of helping people keep their teeth for a lifetime. He has seen a relationship between a “healthy mouth and a healthy body.” He has helped hundreds of patients with acute and chronic periodontal disease get their gum infections under control, and in turn their health improves. They will often return to the office stating that they feel at least 10 years younger. It is Dr. Sweeney’s passion to help people interested in maintaining their teeth for a lifetime and to give them something to smile about.

Dr. Jamie Azdair has been using and teaching the Phillips Blotting Technique for the last 25 years and has worked closely with Dr. Phillips with regards to many aspects of dentistry. He limits his practice to the use of gold, which he has tested, researched and custom formulated. Dr. Azdair was one of the founding doctors and pioneers who recognized and uncovered mercury toxicity and how it affects living tissue. He has travelled throughout the United States and Europe teaching seminars on dental materials and their effects on the mind and body. He is actively and continuously involved in clinically researching the effects of the new plastics, composites and porcelain restorative materials and how they affect the body. Even prior to these clinical studies, as early as 1983, Dr. Azdair recognized the negative and harmful effects of these materials and ceased using them that same year. He also specializes in homeopathic, osteopathic and electromagnetic fields of research, practice and study as they relate to dentistry and health in general.

Just a little note to let Toothwizards patrons know just how proud I am of this organization in getting the good news out there that there is hope for those who suffer from gum disease. My father was Dr. J.E. Phillips, the founder of the Blotting Technique of mouth care.

He worked tirelessly his whole career in the field of periodontics in educating the public on how to be proactive for their own mouth health. The public has been entirely brainwashed to believe that brushing and flossing are the only ways to maintain total mouth health, but yet these are the very things that actually cause gum disease, and ultimately, tooth loss.

Mouth care can be very inexpensive if done with this method. In fact, changing your Blotting Brush twice each month may cost you around $8 a month and with the proper use of my lather’s technique, will also eliminate the need for 6 month cleanings.

Remember, gum disease causes tartar. Tartar does not cause gum disease. I see many famous people in the news who have extremely bad gum disease, but yet have access to “the best dentists in the business”, not to mention more than enough financial ability to get the best work done that is available. One couple that comes to mind is Dr. Phil and his wife Robin. If only they knew about the simplicity of the Blotting Technique.

I hope that you will learn this technique and appreciate its effectiveness so that you may enjoy teeth for a lifetime.
