"#bellabeautiful has a fear of toothbrushes! She doesn’t like the way they feel, she cries, and she says “owww!” when we use them. Well our awesome dentist gave us this toothbrush by @colliscurve. It’s not your typical brush, its bristles are curved instead of straight. It eliminates the need to use the “scrub and roll” technique that we do with a standard brush.
