Coates Pty Ltd was established in 2006 in Sydney Australia. We have developed Electric flosser technology to specifically address tooth plaque prevention, particularly for users with teeth braces and teeth bridges.
Our True Passion
We are passionate about preventing tooth plaque and our work has been to create an electric flosser range that will encourage a greater uptake of flossing, and in turn, improve general health in the community.
In response to you asking us specifically to design a better flossing experience, we have developed and patented the Piccolo electric flosser devices, a radically new approach to flossing to make it as quick and easy as brushing your teeth. It is a huge advance over flossing products on the market today. Particular attention in the design process was to offer benefits to people with teeth braces or bridges.
Our team, with its wealth of experience in electronic and mechanical engineering, brings considerable expertise to concept design and development. During this process informed opinion and guidance is sought from experts in the dental industry.
The company is proudly 100% Australian owned, and is based in Sydney, Australia. We are committed to a sustainable business model focused on ethical standards.
International recognition for our achievements has been excellent.
The electric flosser technology has been demonstrated on the national ABC TV New Inventors program and was the Episode Winner.
In a nationwide survey of most promising product innovations by Australian Anthill magazine, the Piccolo was awarded 45th place out of 861 nominations in The Smart 100 by a panel of 1,600 “Maevens” (industry experts).
The company has secured international patents for the Piccolo technology, as well as for other products, in Australia, USA, Canada, Japan and a number of European countries (TBA)
