For the second year in a row, I’m fortunate to be working with Oral-B as a #PowerOfDad Ambassador in the days leading up to #RockFathersDay. While I’m not exactly “smiling” in the picture above (taken with my dad back in 1978-ish while he put my first Big Wheel together), creating healthy smiles is what Oral-B is all about, and with two daughters and a supportive wife – I have a lot to smile about as a grownup.  Want to see 15-seconds of what makes THE ROCK FATHER smile? Watch this video to find out…



Being a Father is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me, and as the video above shows, it’s being there for all of those little moments – from the daily routine to the outside-the-norm adventures that epitomize the #PowerOfDad for me. 

In continuing to “celebrate fatherhood’s little moments and the dads that bring smiles to their families every day,” Oral-B has released their own #PowerOfDad video, too. Take a look…


BLACK 7000Part of that daily routine for us – keeping our teeth healthy and clean – is truly a family affair, and this year the folks at Oral-B sent me an early Father’s Day Gift – the Oral-B BLACK 7000 High Performance Toothbrush – dare I say, the most “sexy” electric toothbrush I’ve ever seen. When I opened the box, I swore I heard AC/DC cranking out the opening chords to “Back in Black,” but I know it was just my imagination. It was a strange feeling to have about oral care – more akin to the feeling of checking out a fine automobile for the very first time.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“Oral-B, the worldwide leader in the toothbrush market, is taking oral care to the extreme with the introduction of its newest and most technologically advanced power toothbrush, the Oral-B 7000 BLACK. As the premium option for the Oral-B lineup, the Oral-B 7000 BLACK features Oral-B’s signature oscillating, rotating and pulsating technology and provides superior cleaning and a more personalized brushing experience compared to a regular manual toothbrush. With its sleek design and top of the line features, even the most discerning consumers will note, and benefit from, the unparalleled design and technology it offers.”
