Jodi Breau had the idea for Dental Lace while working as a school librarian. She needed to carry dental floss in her bag, but she rejected the standard, ugly dental floss containers available and decided to create a more fashionable option. As she worked on her design, it soon became clear that the current dental floss market created a huge amount of waste. Her goal shifted to creating a fashionable and eco-friendly dental floss container and Dental Lace refillable dental floss was born. Dental Lace, Inc. is proudly located in Maine, a state with a long history of environmental protection efforts. As much as possible, Maine businesses are used to bring Dental Lace to market.
