Hi, we're Knotty Floss®

I 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
  • cosmetic dentistry.

Throughout these different specialties, I was surprised to find one overarching commonality. Patients hated flossing and had many complaints 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 have tested floss on my colleagues, patients, children, family and friends, and have received great reviews from many customers. This has led to more research and the final set of products we have today, Knotty Floss®. My family and friends have loved Knotty Floss® products and I hope yours will as well!
