In this Goby electric toothbrush review, you will know if the hype is real regarding this electric toothbrush…

 Founded by Claire Burke and Ben goldberg, the Goby toothbrush is great for those who wants an affordable option with a really nice design. 

In our opinion, the best electronic on the market right now is the BURST electric toothbrush. Read our review of them by click HERE.




Goby Toothbrush


The Goby electric toothbrush is one of the few subscription options on the market right now. They provide to the consumer a nicely designed, direct-to-consumer dental care experience without the higher price tag of some of the brands out there.

The toothbrush is minimalistic with only one button and it only has two settings, compared to other brands with 3 or more settings. Like the other electric toothbrushes out there, the head oscillates back and forth (some electric toothbrushes use vibration instead).

The founders really tried to keep things as simple as possible with this toothbrush. Some other brands out there are super expensive and offer so many options and settings, but nobody uses them. With the Goby, they offer a simple toothbrush at a relatively low price. 

Their philosophy is that your toothbrush doesn’t have to be complex in order to give you a proper clean. This quite emphasizes the underlying meaning of their brand; Go. Be. 


Goby Toothbrush Price


A lot of these direct-to-consumer electric toothbrush companies sells a lot more products than jsut the toothbrush and new heads. Some sell toothpaste, etc. Not with Goby. Goby only offers you an electronic toothbrush and if you decide to subscribe, you will get new brush heads every 1-3 months, depending on what you choose.

Goby gives you 3 standards options when it comes to their brush kits, and you also get limited edition brushes.

For the metallic brush, the price is $95 if you only order the brush without the subscription, and $80 is you take it with their subscription!
