John Gallagher is the founder of Clean Bite, LLC and co-inventor of Clean Bite™ and Clean Bite™ II. The company develops products that provide oral hygiene for both people and companion pets. Clean Bite™ is a toothbrush for people who want to brush their teeth whenever situations prevent the use of traditional means, whether due to where they are or physical disabilities. Clean Bite™II was originally designed for household pets, but it can address specific human needs with adaptation.
Clean Bite™ I is U.S. Patented, and Clean Bite™ II incorporates some of those patent claims. However, the majority of Clean Bite™ II's I.P. are claims found in its Patent Pending filed with the USPTO and scheduled for International filings on a selective basis. Clean Bite™ III, when introduced, will be for human use, with special attention to the practicality of use by children under six years of age and anyone with special needs.
Clean Bite™ is the most unique single-use toothbrush in the world. Made from a collagen-based formulation, it dissolves and is swallowed at the end of its 60 to 90 seconds of utility. It has the appearance of a mouthpiece but contains upwards of 800 bristles, four reservoirs of dentifrice, and the duplicity of acting as a delivery system for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) to meet needs found in the developing world and populations under managed care.
These products are available for out-licensing and or distributorships in counties throughout most of the world. Regions within the U.S. are available under certain agreements.

CE Mark Certification of LivFresh Dental Gel
As the world continues to fight COVID, good oral health is more important than ever. That's why we are very excited to share information on the clinical approval of our dental gel.
LivFresh Dental Gel is now the first in the world to meet requirements under the European Medical Device Regulations as an over-the-counter toothpaste for the prevention and treatment of periodontitis and gingivitis.
LivFresh Dental Gel received European approval as a medical device with therapeutic claims. This is accomplished by getting a CE Mark certification, which means that LivFresh met strict safety and performance criteria under the European Medical Device Regulations as an over-the-counter product to both prevent and treat periodontitis and gingivitis.
LivFresh Dental Gel is registered as a CE Marked product with the German Federal Institute of Drugs and Devices. EU Medical Device approvals are recognized across European countries as well as in most Asian countries, all South and North American countries except USA, and Africa.
Peter Jacobsen, a nationally recognized expert on dental pharmacology said, “LivFresh Dental Gel represents a huge breakthrough in oral care worldwide. While there are toothpastes that treat and prevent gingivitis, there is no toothpaste approved by any regulatory agency that can claim treatment and prevention of periodontitis, a severe form of gum disease."
This comes shortly after our groundbreaking double-blind clinical study recently published in the Journal of Periodontology, which showed that the group that brushed with LivFresh dental gel saw 80% of their diseased pocket depths improve. Pocket depths are markers for periodontitis. These results are similar to the reported average improvement observed with scaling and root planing when used with FDA-approved locally delivered antibacterial drugs.
Additionally, the above study showed that compared to the group using the FDA approved antiplaque, anti-gingivitis control toothpaste, subjects who brushed with LivFresh saw 2.5 times less gum inflammation and 1.9 times less gum bleeding.
Dr. Nicolaas Geurs added, “LivFresh study results indicate a big step forward in the arena of patient/professional cotreatment of inflammation-based periodontitis. LivFresh presents a novel and significant addition to the clinical control and management of periodontal disease".
Currently available in the United States, LIVFRESH is currently sold under a plaque removal designation. LIVFRESH is clinically proven to remove plaque 250% better than a market-leading toothpaste. LivFresh Dental Gels can be purchased online here and in select dental offices across the country.
