About Us


Aquapick New Zealand is a gum health company formed after Managing Director Simon Clegg was advised by his Dentist and Dental Hygienist to increase the health of his gums by flossing daily. 

Finding dental floss difficult to use, painful, and just too fiddly, Simon set out to find a more effective way to remove the plaque and bacteria that was damaging his gums. 

In 2014 Josi Imports and Aquapick New Zealand were found and over the course of 6 weeks, Simon used the then AQ - 300 once or twice a day. After six weeks Simon went back to his dental hygienist. Bridget was amazed at the difference in Simons gum health, the difference was noticeable on the initial visual inspection, the redness has reduced, with deeper inspection, where for the past 15 years there had been bleeding and a reasonable amount of pain, there was no bleeding and or pain. 

The results of using Aquapick were astonishing, not only was it easy and gentle to use, it was very effective at increasing gum health. 

Gum disease and gingivitis are very common in adults from the age of just 20 and in some cases younger. Removing the plaque and bacteria is vital and leads are healthier gums and better overall wellbeing. 

In 2015 Aquapick was picked up by progressive dental practices and these practices still recommend Aquapick to their patients today. This shows the quality and focus of customer service that Aquapick New Zealand offers. Simon says he treats every customer like a friend and how Simon would like to be treated. 

In 2017,  Aquapick attended the New Zealand Dental Hygienist conference in New Plymouth. This is where Aquapick was first seen by Robyn Watson, the then newly elected President of the International Federation of Dental Hygienists. Robyn was very impressed by Aquapick, she loved it. Unable to personally endorse Aquapick by name due to organisation rules, Robyn was very impressed by Aquapick and offered support and encouragement. In 2019 Robyns tenure as President of IFDH was handed on and Robyn was able to endorse a product she would be happy to put her name to.
