Our Story

liz-360-lightI am a dental hygienist and the creator of Knotty Floss®. I was born and raised in Southern California and have two grown children. I entered the dental world in 1980 and have worked in every dental specialty; orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, periodontal, general and cosmetic dentistry. Throughout these different specialties, I was surprised to find one overarching commonality. Patients hated flossing and had many compaints about why they didn’t floss. After hearing complaints from thousands of people I started to think that the design of ordinary floss may be the problem. I began a journey to create a better floss that not only feels good but is easier to use and addresses the most common obstacles that people have shared with me in the over 30 years I have spent in the dental field.

As I am still in private practice I was able to trial some prototype floss on my colleagues, patients, children, family and friends. This has led to the final product we have today, Knotty Floss®. My family and friends have loved Knotty Floss® and I hope yours will as well!
