<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p style=”margin-bottom:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-indent:28.35pt;line-height:200%”>The &ldquo;Internet of Things&rdquo; is one of the most recent iteration of the long push towards greater automation and inter-device integration aimed at improving the efficiency, accuracy and the cost-affordability of the devices being used by people in their homes and businesses daily. Light bulbs are some of the appliances that can be connected to the Internet. For instance, Phililips Hue LED Light Bulbs contain a &ldquo;bridge&rdquo; which allows a person to connect tablets or smartphone to the LED light bulbs (Dumanovic, 2015). The users can use these devices to program lighting preferences remotely. Refrigerators, television sets and washing machines are among the other things which can be connected to the Internet. Security systems can be connected to the Oral-B toothbrushes so as to enable the owner to have a direct control over it on his or her tablet, smartphone or other device.</p>

<p style=”margin-bottom:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-indent:28.35pt;line-height:200%”>Working with the professional is the only way, Oral-B can be marketed to the users. Procter &amp; Gamble should come up with the marketing strategies which targets these professionals. The app must prove to the dentists that the products would be able to meet the needs of the customers. They should see how the product would focus on the problem zones and should provide brushing instructions which allows for plague removal, whitening and keeping gums healthy. It is only after seeing these benefits, the dentists would be able to recommend Oral-B to their patients.</p>

<p style=”margin-bottom:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-indent:28.35pt;line-height:200%”>Most of the people take less time for brushing their teeth and as a result, they are not able to remove all the germs. Besides, the majority of them also brush their teeth only once a day, either in the morning or in the evening (Bray, 2010). The dentists have the responsibility to educate the people on the recommended length of times and number of times the teeth should be brushed. Due to the fact that the Oral-B toothbrush provides the solution to this problem, I would recommend my friends to use it, given that it provides users with the statistics of their brushing time. The advantages associated with Oral-B, such as tongue cleaning, flossing, interactivity and rinsing technology are some of the factors which persuade me to recommend it to other people.</p>

<p style=”margin-bottom:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt; text-indent:28.35pt;line-height:200%”>The Achievement trophies tracks once personal bests and award trophies as one achieve more in the tooth brushing process. Even though the trophies are meaningless, it makes the tooth brushing as a fun and one would be motivated to unlock many more trophies (Naziri, 2015). As a result, one would be in a position to brush his/her teeth as required by the dentists, but more importantly it makes one have healthier mouths and teeth. Besides, the trophies allow one to be in a position to get dental care recommendations from the dentists and they include focused care areas, custom tips and timers and the setting up reminders. These Oral-B app trophies provided to the users are very important since this will motivate and influence them to change their brushing habits as required by the dentists and other professionals in the health care. For instance, once session length and the brushing streak is counted and the tongue cleaning, rinsing streaks and flossing streaks measured consecutively on a daily basis (Naziri, 2015).</p>
