Ingrid Rodriguez – Eikonic
Charlie talks with Eikonic's Founder, Ingrid Rodriguez, about the dental hygiene product designed to help a billion mouths over 10 years.
- Eikonic designed a technology paste to support the rebuilding of tooth structure and a gum issue repair solution.
- Scientifically proven, multi-functional and formulated by Ingrid, who was an ex-dental practitioner.
- Designed as a social mission to restore oral health which focuses on treatment and prevention for people, the planet and prosperity.
- “Oral health is a basic human right. Every man, woman and child on the planet, should have access to products and services that help prevent oral diseases.” – Ingrid Rodriguez, CEO.
Ingrid Rodriguez, founder of Eikonic, was born in Chile and grew up in Perth, where she studied oral hygiene and saw a gap in the market to develop a revolutionary product assisting over 3 million people suffering from oral disease.
Did you know there is 2.4 billion tooth decay cases in adult teeth, over 780 million with severe gum disease and a large amount of oral thrush globally?
“Do whatever it takes to be you own best friend. That was another great piece of advice, and a quote that I’ve taken with me and my journey. Sometimes as a sole founder it can be very lonely…” Ingrid Rodriguez
