The 3 BIG questions about the Dazzlepro Elements Sonic toothbrush

If you are short of time, the answers to the following 3 questions should let you know all you need to about the Elements Sonic toothbrush with UV Sanitizing Base. If I have missed something, let us know in the comments.

If you want more detail, you can read the full Dazzplepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush review further down the page.

1. Is there anything drastically wrong with this toothbrush?

No.

All the essential elements of an electric toothbrush are covered and on the whole, the Elements Sonic is a more than satisfactory electric toothbrush.

However, we did have some initial concerns about the warranty, and the whitening products being offered by Dazzlepro, which we elaborate on below.

2. Which other brushes should I consider?

Take time to consider the Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean series of toothbrushes.

The 4100 series is a really solid option. It’s actually what we recommend as the best overall electric toothbrush choice.

It doesn’t offer the array of cleaning modes or UV sanitizer that the Dazzlepro offers, but it is a quality product for the price and has the essentials that anyone needs.

If a more feature rich brush is of interest to you, then the ProtectiveClean 6100 is more closely matched to the Elements Sonic. It lacks the UV sanitizer but comes with a travel case and some innovative technology built-in.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review [USA]

And now for a bit more detail…

Despite having been writing about toothbrushes and dental health products for over 4 years, it was only recently that I became aware of Dazzlepro.

The brand has risen to success in a very short space of time.

This, however, is the nature of the toothbrush market today, it is perfectly possible to create a very popular and desirable product thanks to the manufacturing processes and connected world that we live in.

Who are Dazzlepro?

I don’t normally talk extensively about the companies behind the toothbrushes I review, but I can’t help but feel it is somewhat necessary here. I think it is important to understand how some of these companies and brands differ.

Dazzlepro are a new brand, even to me as a toothbrush critic, but they kept popping up on my radar in the last few months.

Although many new brands come to market, very few get mentioned as regularly as Dazzlepro appears to have been, hence my interest.

Having undertaken a bit of research, it transpires that Dazzlepro is a brand owned and managed by Dastmalchi (https://dastmalchi.com/).

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 1

Dastmalchi is essentially a US-based company who own and manage a variety of brands within different marketplaces. They source and market products to answer different customer wants and needs.

From what I am able to tell, the Elements Sonic toothbrush is not designed or manufactured in house by Dastmalchi, like Oral-B or Sonicare might.

Instead, the company has sourced a product designed and manufactured by a Chinese company RISUNTECH. Just check out this web page, the product looks remarkably similar.

As I understand it, Dastmalchi has taken this design and in conjunction with the manufacturer, customized it with the Dazzlepro logo, etc ready for sale within the US.

Interestingly, if you check out my review of the AquaSonic Black Series Sonic toothbrush, you will see they also appear to source the brush from the same Chinese company.

It is very common for Chinese companies to offer a product/design that brands can customize to sell in their own markets. Thousands of companies do this in many different product categories.

There are many emerging toothbrush brands who haven’t actually designed and made the toothbrush themselves but have instead purchased a brush designed and made by a Chinese manufacturer. It is then customized with their own brand etc.

Check out my article on emerging toothbrush brands to learn more.

It should be noted that at the time of review, none of the in box documentation or their website made reference to the warranty provided with this brush. This is concerning as post purchase support is very important. I contacted them to be advised it came with a 2 year warranty.

Whilst their website offers an email address, telephone number, physical address, and online contact form to get in touch with them, there is no reference to any of these communication options in the box. This is sad to see. I feel adding a telephone number or email address within the manual would be worthwhile for customers.

It is worth knowing also that the Dazzlepro brand is being used to sell two different teeth whitening products in addition to an electric toothbrush. One is Lumi White, an activated charcoal powder, and the other is Halo White, a teeth whitening system that contains 12% hydrogen peroxide.

Whilst we have not gone hands on with these products, we are somewhat concerned about the safety of using these products.

Activated charcoal is potentially more abrasive on the teeth and the long term effects are not known as no clinical studies have been conducted.

Hydrogen peroxide is clinically proven as an effective teeth bleaching agent, but the lack of custom molding to the mouth tray puts the soft tissues of your mouth (gums) at greater risk of being exposed to and potentially damaged by the strong bleaching agent.

Variants of this toothbrush

At the time of writing this review, there are 3 variants of the Elements Sonic toothbrush.

All 3 options are technically and functionally the same. The difference is the colors of the door to the sanitizing base and the colored ring at the top and bottom of the brush handle.

The options are:

  • Gold
  • Charcoal
  • Silver

In all instances, the brush handle and sanitizer base are primarily white in color, but on a gold brush, the door to the sanitizer is gold as is the ring at the top of the brush handle, whereas these are silver on the silver model.

What’s in the box?

  • 1 x Dazzlepro Elements Sonic toothbrush handle
  • 1 x UV sanitizing base
  • 2 x Standard sized brush heads
  • 1 x Compact sized brush head
  • Documentation
Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 2

Key Features

  • Sonic cleaning action with up to 40,000 vibrations per minute
  • 4 cleaning modes
  • 3 brush heads
  • Dedicated cleaning mode button
  • Built-in timer
  • Automatic power off
  • UV sanitizer
  • Long battery life

Pro & Cons

Here are what I consider to be the pros and cons of the Elements Sonic.

The Positives

  • Multiple cleaning modes – Different modes suitable for different users preferences.
  • Dedicated cleaning mode button – Change the cleaning mode without having to power the brush on.
  • Built-in timer – 2 minute timer as well as a 30 second quadpacer to encourage even toothbrushing.
  • UV sanitizer – Kill off the majority of bacteria that may exist on the brush head.
  • Battery life – 3 weeks of battery life between charges.

The Negatives

  • Quality of materials – Whilst satisfactory, quality is inferior to better known brands.
  • UV sanitizer – Makes for a bulkier addition to the countertop. Running time could be longer.

Design, usability, clean & general use

Credit where credit is due, the packaging and unboxing experience of the Dazzlepro Elements Sonic is very good.

It is a fairly sizeable box, because of the UV sanitizing base that is included.

The outer box is very smart, it looks sophisticated and calls out key features without looking garish.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 3

The box then slides apart to reveal the contents.

All the items are within an inner plastic tray.

As you will see I have the silver color option.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 4

All the items you get in the box are listed above in the ‘what’s in the box’ section.

I want to pay particular attention to the manual, it is one of the smartest manuals I have ever seen with a toothbrush. Almost feels like a small sales catalog for the brush.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 5

It contains most of the key information you could need and want, but it does lack any details about the warranty and how to contact Dazzlepro.

Some basic FAQ’s are answered and a web address is provided, but I feel it falls a little short on the troubleshooting/warranty side of things.

What was immediately obvious was the similarity between Dazzlepro and the AquaSonic Black Series toothbrush.

The box contents and handle color are different, but the handle is technically and aesthetically the same.

Sporting a typical design for an electric toothbrush, I am quite satisfied with the way it looks and feels.

Upon first handling the brush it looks quite smart and there are some nice touches.

The handle of the brush itself is not perfectly round, but it has rounded edges. There is a slight squaring to the overall handle shape that in my opinion can help from an in hand grip perspective.

The color scheme in this instance is white with silver accents.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 6

At the top of the handle is a silver colored ring and there is another at the base.

The silver is plastic and not metal.

The silver accents become gold and charcoal on the other color variants.

Running down the front of the handle are some important features.

The largest and most obvious is the circular power on/off button. This has the text ‘ON/OFF’ beneath it.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 7

Another circular button sits below this. A little smaller, this is used to change between the 4 cleaning modes the brush has. I would usually call this the mode button. There is no text below the button to explain this.

These modes are labeled beneath the button.

The 4 modes are:

  • Clean
  • Soft
  • Whiten
  • Massage

When selected, the mode is lit up with white light, so you can clearly see which mode is active.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 8

I like the fact that words are used for the modes. Many brands use icons, which make it more difficult to tell what mode it is.

Towards the bottom of the handle is a battery icon, this lights up either green or red depending on the battery status.

The base of the brush is flat, this means that the brush will stand upright on a worktop.

There is however a recess in the base, which the charging stand fits into for recharging.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 9

On the back of the handle are 3 grooves that run a little over two-thirds of the way up the handle.

The groves are functional and help the fingers grip onto the brush when in hand. Subtle, but practical I like this touch.

Smooth to the touch, the brush handle is wrapped in what appears to be some sort of silicone/rubber material. Although smooth, it does help with grip and is much better than the glossy plastic bodies you get on many brushes. Essentially what I am saying, that it looks and feels quite good.

But, take a little more time to inspect the materials and you can tell that they are not as good quality as more premium models like those from Sonicare. I should say they are more than satisfactory though.

At the top of the handle extends a metal shaft. This is what makes the brush head function and is fixed into the brush motor sealed inside the handle.

The brush heads push onto the metal shaft. To remove the heads, you simply pull them off.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 10

3 brush heads are provided in the box.

The heads are all made from a smooth white colored plastic. Each has a fixed colored ring at the bottom of them, all 3 had a different color. White, chrome and grey were supplied. I presume these colors are designed to help users know which brush head is theirs.

The 2 larger heads shared the same bristle style, whilst the compact head was different.

All 3 had the typical sonic toothbrush head shape, oval rather than round like rotary toothbrushes.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 11

The compact head is supposed to have firmer bristles than the large head. This was just about noticeable, but not as obvious as I would have expected.

The compact head had nylon bristles arranged in 26 tufts. Slightly shorter bristles in the middle, with longer ones at the top and bottom. The taller bristles were green in color compared to the white. This, I believe, is to help with cupping around the tooth and getting into the interdental spaces. I don’t know how many bristles are on each head, but I would say hundreds.

The larger head has all white bristles of 3 varying heights. The longest at the very top, stepping down to the shortest, with two rows of longer tufts running through the middle of the head, before offering taller ones at the bottom again. I count 41 tufts in total.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 12

I don’t have a microscope to be able to check, but I suspect these bristles are rough cut.

What this means is the tip of each bristle has not been through a polishing process that would round the tips. Not going through this process can mean the bristle tips are sharper and less even and can potentially be more aggressive on the gums and soft mouth tissues.

It is not a massive issue for most, but some may get a bit of a stabbing sensation when brushing. The bristles also feel at the stiffer end of the scale, even the larger heads supposedly softer bristles. They certainly were not the softest bristles I have ever used.

It is good practice to replace a brush head every 3 months, sooner if the head is showing signs of wear or damaged bristles.

Unlike some brush heads, there appears not to be any fading bristles to act as a visual clue to replace the brush head. This is by no means a dealbreaker, just something to be aware of.

As I said, 3 heads come supplied, so based on 1 user, you have enough heads to last 9 months.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 13

When you do want more you can go direct or buy them from one of the listed retailers.

The retail price is $19.99 for a pack of 3.

This is cheaper than Sonicare, but a fraction more expensive than Oral-B surprisingly.

Subscribing can save a few dollars and is often a bit more convenient. Dazzlepro includes a flyer promoting the subscription option.

The manual says this toothbrush is waterproof. I would be more inclined to say water resistant.

It is IP rated, which means all the electronics are sealed inside. Whilst you want to avoid submerging the brush in water, a good rinse under the tap for cleaning will be fine.

The manual does not suggest whether you can or not use in the shower. Their use of the word waterproof would suggest so, but you may want to err on the side of caution, just in case.

The built-in rechargeable battery lasts up to 3 weeks on the standard clean mode, which is good.

As part of the electronics, there is a built-in 2 minute timer and 30 second pacer.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 14

Very powerful features, these are in my opinion, basic must haves for any good electric toothbrush.

These work hand in hand and encourage you and me to brush for the dentist recommended time and to do so evenly.

These kick in from the moment you power the brush on.

At 30 second intervals, there is a very slight pause in the brush head motion. This changes the sound also.

The pausing of the brush head is your cue to change quadrant.

The idea is you break your mouth up into 4 sections (quadrants), upper right, upper left, lower right, and lower left.

Spend 30 seconds cleaning each section and by the end of the 2 minutes, you will have achieved a fairly even clean and brushed for as long as a dentist would like you to.

At the end of the 2 minute cleaning cycle, the brush will turn itself off automatically, another neat feature.

Whilst not essential, the brush does not have a pressure sensor built in.

A pressure sensor can slow the brush motor and alert you when brushing too hard. Many Oral-B brushes, as well as the Sonicare ProtectiveClean series, have this built in.

Just be aware, you should not scrub the teeth, the bristles need only skim the surfaces to keep them clean.

The 4 cleaning modes all run for a total of 2 minutes and the timer and pacer works with all modes.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 15

The motor in the brush handle delivers up to 40,000 vibrations (brush strokes) per minute, which is 9,000 more than Sonicare.

It is not clear how the number of vibrations differs between each mode, but the whiten mode sounds and feels most intense like it is using all 40,000.

The massage mode, pulses, altering from what is a higher and lower number of movements. This is designed to help stimulate the gums and encourage better gum health.

The manual describes the modes as follows:

  • Clean – For a standard, all-round deep clean. This mode tackles the surface of your teeth and those hard-to-reach areas.
  • Soft – Fit for those with tooth sensitivity, this mode cleans extra-gently so you don’t have to worry about over-brushing your teeth and gums.
  • Whiten – This mode focuses on polishing off surface stains to leave your teeth clean and sparkling.
  • Massage – Use this setting during your brushing routine to treat your gums to a gentle massage.

To be honest I can’t say that the soft mode felt very soft.

I do not have sensitive gums, but it felt quite intense and pair this with the stiff bristles and it was not as pleasant as if I were using a sensitive mode on a brush from a leading brand.

The modes may work well for some people, but to be honest they are far from essential. Most, myself included, will stick to the ‘clean’ mode for the vast majority of brushing sessions.

To change between the modes you press the smaller of the 2 circular buttons on the brush handle. You can change the mode before the brush is on or during the cleaning cycle. You can press the mode button as many times as you like, it just keeps cycling through the modes.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 16

The on/off button does just that. In fact, rarely will you need to press it to turn the brush off, as it does it automatically.

Both buttons require little force to activate them, and sadly neither give the most satisfying feedback as you press them.

Always handy is a travel case as this can protect the toothbrush handle and brush heads when on the move, alas you don’t get one with the Elements Sonic. You can’t buy a Dazzlepro specific one separately either, you should be able to find a general case if you need one.

Instead of a case, you get a UV sanitizing base station.

This is a unit that measures approximately 6 inches wide, 5 inches tall and 3 inches deep.

There are rubber feet on the base to keep it in place on a countertop and it has a 2 pin power cord of about 4 feet in length.

As the name implies built in, is an ultraviolet (UV) sanitizing module.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 17

This sits to the left hand side whilst on the right is a place to store and recharge the brush handle.

There are very few toothbrushes that come with UV stations. Philips Sonicare does have a couple of units where this is supplied, but as I understand it, the demand and the need for such is relatively low.

Open the door on the unit to reveal the UV bulb and a place to store up to 3 brush heads.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 18

The sanitizer will hold only brush heads compatible with this brush, you can’t place Oral-B or Sonicare heads in here.

Providing the unit is connected to power, when the door is closed, the sanitization process will kick in.

The cycle lasts for 10 minutes after which point the light will automatically turn itself off.

During this routine, as much as 99.9% of bacteria will be killed off, in theory making your brush head more hygienic next time you use it.

It is up to you how often you place your head inside to go through the sanitizing process, but I presume the theory is that you do it after every brushing session.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 19

As highlighted in my guide to the best toothbrush sanitizer, 5-10 minutes seems to be the standard cycle time for such products, however, research has shown how ideally the sanitizers need to run for longer (20 minutes) to be effective.

There is no way of changing the running time of the cycle here, but once a cycle has run, if you open and close the door the cycle will begin again, achieving the same effect.

There are no other items in the box, but I want to reiterate, how there is no mention of the warranty on or within the box, which is disappointing.  Only upon enquiring directly with Dazzlepro did I learn that it was 2 years. To be fair the reply was relatively quick and comprehensive.

All in all, the Elements Sonic is a pretty solid electric toothbrush and whilst there are a few shortcomings, it could be a lot worse.

Summary of design, usability, clean & general use

  • Well packaged, looks a premium product
  • Rounded brush handle
  • White in color with smooth touch rubber grip
  • 3 variants (silver, gold or charcoal)
  • Separate power and cleaning mode buttons
  • 4 cleaning modes (Clean, soft, whiten & massage)
  • Cleaning modes are labeled on the handle and backlit
  • Battery status icon
  • 3 brush heads provided (2 large & 1 compact)
  • Bristles feel a bit stiff
  • 2 minute timer and 30 second pacer built-in
  • Automatic power off function
  • Battery built-in with 3 week battery life
  • IP rated
  • UV sanitizer included
  • 10 minute sanitization cycle
  • No warranty information included but 2 year warranty provided

Battery life

The Elements Sonic has a built-in user rechargeable battery.

Being built-in, this allows the brush to be made watertight and reduces some of the potential points for failure.

It uses a lithium-ion battery, which is more desirable than a brush with a NiMH battery, which some, predominantly older models have.

Whilst it does not always apply, those brushes with a lithium battery tend to last longer and be more reliable than those with a NiMH battery.

The manual claims that you should get 10 days of usage, that is 20 brushing sessions of 2 minutes between charges.

However, the battery is much better than this.

The reality of the situation is that in my hands-on testing it lasted 22 days (44 brushing sessions).

Each brushing session was 2 minutes long. This means for me at least, the battery life is twice that claimed by the manufacturer.

Therefore you are getting a touch over 3 weeks on a single charge.

This is very good and puts the Elements Sonic amongst many of the better brushes available today.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 20

Whilst the brush is not geared towards regular travelers (no travel case) you can most likely travel without needing to take the charging stand. This is a good thing because the charging stand is bulky.

The charging stand is built into the UV sanitizing base that comes into the box.

Whilst the whole unit is as small as it can be given what it offers, it is much too bulky for most to ever consider taking with them on their travels.

Although it has a 2 pin US plug, the unit itself does support 100-240v, meaning if you did travel with it, you would need only a plug adapter for other countries and not a voltage adapter.

The power cord is about 4 feet in length, which is about enough cord for most.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 21

As you will see by the hands on images, the brush sits to the right side of the sanitizing base unit.

There is a molding in the unit for the brush.

The handle sits on the protuberance (a bit sticking out) behind the curved front edge, that has the Dazzlepro name on it.

No power cable fits directly into the brush handle, the protuberance transfers the charge wirelessly to the handle, thanks to coils in the charging stand and handle itself.

It is a slow, but effective method of charging.

It can take up to 24 hours to charge the brush fully.

It is perfectly fine to leave the brush on the charging stand at all times when not in use. The power cord can remain plugged in, you don’t need to disconnect it.

On the brush handle is a LED icon for the battery.

This will light up a green or red color, depending on the remaining power.

The manual is not specific about this, but my own hands on testing suggests the icon will be lit green when power in the battery is above 20% or the brush is on charge.

If the power falls below 20% this is when the icon flashes red to warn you power is low.

Summary of battery life

  • Lithium-Ion battery technology used
  • Claimed 10 days of battery life
  • Achieve 22 days in my hands-on testing
  • Green battery icon when power is above 20%
  • Flashing red battery icon when power is below 20%
  • Takes up to 24 hours to charge fully
  • UV sanitizer base is the charging stand
  • The charger it too bulky to take with you when traveling
  • US 2 pin plug
  • Works on 100-240 volts

Price & where to buy

For a relatively new brand, I am really surprised at just how many places you can buy this from.

Amazon, Vanity Planet, Walmart and Target all stock it.

You can also buy direct from Dazzlepro, but the best prices are available from the other sellers.

Out of all the stockists of Dazzlepro Elements, it is Dazzlepro that are the most expensive.

At the time of writing, the price is $125, which I presume is the recommended retail price, the price Dazzlepro think it is worth.

Whilst paying over $100 might sound like a lot of money, I don’t think this is a ridiculous ask.

It is perhaps a touch higher than what I might expect for a new brand but had this been made by Oral-B or Sonicare that price would not surprise me.

Ignoring the brand and comparing on features alone, I would say the suggested selling price could be even higher, maybe $150-160.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 22

As is common with a lot of electric toothbrushes though, the suggested selling price and the actual selling price is different.

Discounts tend to be $10-30, maybe a little more.

However, in this instance, the typical selling price appears to be around $70 for the Elements Sonic, so a fair saving of $55 on average.

This discounted price appears to be available from anyone other than Dazzlepro direct.

Naturally, brush heads do need to be replaced every 3 months as is recommended by dental professionals.

There are 2 different sizes available, large and compact.

Included in the package are 2 large heads and 1 compact, so you are good for 9 months from the date of purchase.

A pack of 3 replacement heads are $19.99 ($6.66 per head) when bought from Dazzlepro.

Do a bit of shopping about and you can get them for around $14 ($4.66 per head).

Dazzlepro themselves offer a subscription based service where you can get a pack of 3 heads delivered every 30, 60 or 90 days.

When subscribed the cost reduces to $16.99 ($5.66 per head).

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 23

However, it makes more sense to subscribe via Amazon. The cost drops to $12.50 ($4.16 per head) and you can choose and you can choose to have the heads delivered every 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 months.

These head prices are a little more than I had anticipated and are most similar to Oral-B brush head costs. Sonicare heads do tend to be a bit more expensive.

A standard calculation we make here at Electric Teeth is to calculate the cost of ownership over a 3 year period.

For the sake of this example, I will assume you are buying the heads as one off purchases (not subscribed) from online retailers selling at the more cost effective $14 for a pack of 3.

Over 3 years, the cost of owning Dazzlepro will be $112 or 10 cents per day.

This price does exclude the cost of water, toothpaste and electric to charge it. This price also works on some assumptions, but you get a rough idea.

You can bring the cost down further if you were to share it with other members of your household. All you need do is invest in is extra brush heads.

All in all, this is not a bad price when I think of the cost that some similar brushes work out at.

I mentioned how the Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 was a solid alternative option. At the time of review that worked out at about 13 cents per day. I still think this is ultimately a better brush all things considered, even if it might be a few dollars more expensive overall.

Should the budget be tight, then why not consider the AquaSonic I mentioned, that is just 4 cents per day!

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 24

Please note that all prices quoted are approximates and will vary based on location, supplier and time of purchase.  These figures were correct at the time of writing and should not be relied upon as hard fact, but used as a guide during your decision process.

Summary of price & where to buy

  • Recommended retail price is $125
  • Sells for $70
  • Amazon, Vanity Planet, Walmart and Target all stock it.
  • 2 sizes of brush heads sold in packs of 3
  • Brush heads cost from $14-20 per pack
  • Works out at around 10 cents per day over 3 years

Reliability & long term use

I am unable to give you a completely honest and transparent explanation as to how well this brush will last and perform over an extended period of time.

Only a few weeks could be spared to test the Elements Sonic, but it is only after many months, if not years of testing do you know what a product is really like.

Having handled so many toothbrushes I have gained a pretty good understanding of the likely durability of products and I am pleased to say that there is little that gives immediate cause for concern.

The general build quality is good and whilst the materials are not as premium as some others, they are satisfactory.

Dazzlepro Elements Sonic Toothbrush Review 25

That said, being a product that is made by a third party, Dazzlepro or should I say parent company Dastmalchi, are limited by their control over the product and its durability long term.

Whilst no products are infallible, including those from the big brands, indications often suggest that these cheaper Chinese made electronic products do not always exhibit the best reliability.

A typical life of a toothbrush is 3-5 years and generally, a warranty does offer support for a proportion of this time.

Reports do exist of some Dazzlepro units failing relatively quickly.

Dazzlepro offer a 2 year warranty.

I had to email them to find this out though. At the time of review, there was no mention of the warranty on their in box documentation or on their website.

To be fair their reply was prompt and helpful, stating:

All of our products are covered by a two-year manufacturer warranty.

Conclusion

There is a lot to like about the Elements Sonic toothbrush, many things have been implemented well, which is refreshing to see for such a new brand to the market.

Many of the essential must have features have been included and there are a couple of nice additions.

I can’t say it is a bad toothbrush and many would be perfectly happy with this as part of their oral healthcare routine.

The UV sanitizing base will for some be a worthwhile extra, but I am not convinced that most people really have much interest in it, particularly when it ends up increasing the overall cost of the product.

If past experience is anything to go by, I am pretty convinced, the majority would rather save $20 or $30 and buy it without the sanitizer.

If this is the case, brushes like the ProtectiveClean 4100 from Philips Sonicare become very appealing.

An initially more cost-effective model, it actually benefits from some smarter features and is a better quality product overall, with the added benefit of being made by a market leading brand.

Even if you can justify the higher spend, for most, investing in a Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 is a more sensible decision.
