Is the top hat toothbrush the latest dental perk?

Something for the weekend…

There could be a new dental benefit hitting the market, which could save employees time before the morning rush-hour commute.

A top hat with a hands-free toothbrush netted student Sam Hunter Baxter top prize in an invention competition.

The invention, which will be manufactured, can be used on the go and even at the office to freshen up before a meeting, since the top hat also includes toothpaste.

Most would think this is odd, but it beat off 300 other wacky entries, which included training shoes with rollers on the soles to act as mini treadmills.

It could have plenty of potential, then, to be added to an employer’s dental plan.
