Philips has made it its mission to help improve and impact the lives of 3 billion people by 2030. The company is well on its way towards achieving that goal with a range of personal care products that span nearly every aspect of our daily lives. And at the IFA Global Press Conference in Spain this week, the brand gave us an early look at some of the things coming down the pipeline later this year.
Marlies Gebetsberger, market leader for Philips Personal Health DACH, outlined a number of new offerings that the company is working on, including a newly expanded Philips Sonicare Teledentistry service, a noninvasive snoring prevention device, and a refreshed airfryer.
The Teledentistry service, which launched last year in the U.S., will expand into Europe by the end of this year, Gebetsberger said. The service gives patients remote access to a network of licensed dentists, and there they can get consultative advice within a 24 hour period. In the U.S., the service is available in two options: Direct Care ($10), which provides quick answers and personalized recommendations for specific oral care questions in as little as six hours; and Complete Care ($35), which provides more in-depth assessments of specific areas of oral health concerns within 24 hours.
