ZERObrush CSO (Chief Smile Officer) Founder

Dr. Nidhi Pai is the inventor and came up with the concept after spending countless years explaining and getting frustrated with how her patients "brush" their teeth and ruin their gums. Nidhi is a dentist and owns her own dental studio in Palo Alto, CA. She always believes its time to say "No More Brushing".   

You may also find Nidhi advocating sustainable living and her desire is to create a permaculture farm and a dental office in one location. Go figure.
