What an impressive, feature packed, re-chargeable toothbrush, with technology you can use for better daily, oral health care. I love how this unit is designed to visibly provide you an effective, real-time evaluation of your brushing and tooth cleaning regimen using your smartphone. The long-term oral health benefits far outweigh its price point.
Each sonic toothbrush head contains Bluetooth 'smart sensors' for pressure, location, and scrubbing. There are four preset cleaning modes and three intensity settings. However, I can easily customize any setting to my individual needs and comfort level. It is ruggedly-built and feels like it is coated with a non-slip material for easier gripping.
This unit provides me an in-home dental-assistant, of sorts, through the Philips Sonicare app, which steers me to use the correct method for more thorough cleaning and healthier teeth. The Philips Sonicare app is available to download Free for Android and IOS smartphones. After downloading the app I was directed to set my product, 'profile' and pair my Sonicare Handle with my Android smartphone. Bluetooth pairing with the Sonicare was simple and prompted by the app. All I have to do now is set up my smart phone in a convenient spot so I can visually see what the app is displaying as I clean my teeth. This app provides me with so much valuable information:
It allows me to visually and actively use my smartphone to monitor my teeth cleaning and provides an automatic, timer for me to switch to another section of my teeth, indicating the next section to clean.
It tells me if I am not cleaning my teeth thoroughly enough and recommends additional cleaning indicating those particular teeth and areas, which need it.
Allows me to set personal oral hygiene goals, like plaque removal, teeth whitening, fresh breath, and gum health, and, to customize my own individual, oral hygiene goals.
It gives me a Progress Report on the coverage of my teeth, pressure, scrubbing, and up to 180 days of use. It also prompts me as to how many more sessions I may have left using that particular brush head.
The app allows me to set brushing session reminders for my back teeth (molars) – I can select a 'start' location, upper right, then upper left; lower left, lower right. It also lets me set reminders for mouth rinse and tongue cleaning.
It uniquely allows me to focus on particular areas of my teeth, which are prone to plaque, bleeding, gum recession, and dreaded cavities. I can save that information and the intuitive cleaning app concentrates on those areas that need special attention. How cool is that?

Since I go to my dentist for cleaning and check-ups twice a year, I'm always told after-the-fact, what areas I should have been cleaning better or concentrating on. The greatest advantage of this Philips Sonicare DiamondCleanSmart 9300 is that it allows me to be more preventative and motivated towards my daily, oral hygiene. Instead of having to wait six months to have my dentist point out the areas I should have cleaned better, the Philips app is now my personal home, dental-assistant, guiding me, daily and accordingly. My goal is too follow the app's recommendations and, of course, provide my teeth with better overall care and avoid costly dental expenses. WooHoo!
In my wildest dreams I never thought an app based sonic toothbrush would ever benefit me. I am now a 'believer'. After only three days of daily, twice-a-day use, my mouth feels like I recently visited my dentist' office for a scheduled cleaning. WoW! Although they are pricey, I plan to buy several of these units as Christmas gifts, mainly to my Grand Children. To me, it is so obvious, that this Philips Sonicare DiamondCleanSmart unit would make a fantastic gift for any occasion, and, to anyone you think would benefit from better oral health care.
I highly recommend this unit and give it a resounding five-stars – ten if it were on the scale. I have never felt more confident about my oral hygiene since I have used this Philips Sonicare unit. I love this new and technological way of having a personal, home, dental-assistant to enable me to achieve proactive oral hygiene. Here's to healthy teeth – YooHoo!
