Availability in the UK
I am getting multiple questions from my British readers about the availability of this model in the UK.
The Sonicare ExpertClean is listed on the Philips UK website, but until the mid-March of 2020, I could not find any online retailer that carries this toothbrush.
But now the Philips Sonicare ExpertClean toothbrush is available on Amazon.co.uk here – Philips Sonicare ExpertClean 7300.
Brushing teeth is one thing that is done on a routine, especially for those who place a high degree of emphasis on their oral hygiene. While there are some who are already satisfied with any toothbrush that can be used, there are some with discriminating tastes and look for a set of attributes.
There are different kinds of toothbrushes offered in the market, from the cheap to the expensive ones. If you are very much particular with your oral hygiene, you will not be contented with just selecting any brand or any model. You will have to carefully choose based on a number of criteria.
Modes and Intensities
Philips Sonicare ExpertClean toothbrush features 4 modes – Clean, Deep Clean+, White+, and Gum Health, and you can choose between 3 intensities in each brushing mode.
- 3 intensities – Low / Medium / High
- 4 modes
- Clean (2 minutes) – for exceptional everyday clean
- Deep Clean+ (3 minutes) – for an invigorating deep clean
- White+ (2 minutes 40 seconds) – to remove surface stains
- Gum Health (3 minutes 20 seconds) – special attention to molars
This model from Philips lineup has been clinically proven to improve overall gum health already during the first two weeks of use. How is this possible? The toothbrush features the Gum Health mode that provides 2 minutes of thorough whole mouth cleaning with an additional 80 seconds of gentle cleaning for problem areas, particularly along the gum line.
BrushSync Mode Pairing
Philips Sonicare ExpertClean recognizes the connected brush head and chooses the relevant mode using BrushSync technology.
C3 Premium Plaque Control head pairs with Clean mode. G3 Premium Gum Care brush head pairs with Gum Health mode.
There is also a W3 Premium White toothbrush head that pairs with White+ that should be purchased separately if you are going for maximum teeth whitening action.
When it is time to change the brush head, you will get the message in the app. The toothbrush will also demand the new brush by blinking the indicator.
Should you always use the new BrushSync brush heads? No! The toothbrush is compatible with all Click-on type Sonicare brush heads.
The toothbrush features an advanced brushing app and uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to connect to Android phones, Bluetooth 4.0 enabled tablets and iOS devices.
Exceptional Battery Life
The toothbrush comes with a latest-generation Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery that lasts at least 14 days.
I have seen user testimonials stating that a new brush lasts 25 or even more days using the standard mode.
The toothbrush has a battery indicator that shows you the battery status:
- a yellow flashing LED together with beeps tells you that battery is almost empty
- 1 solid green LED indicates low battery status at 10% charge
- 2 solid green LEDs indicate medium 33-66% charge
- 3 solid green LEDs indicate 66%+ charge
Design and Finish
The Philips Sonicare ExpertClean toothbrush with slim ergonomic design is available in White (HX9690/06), Black (HX9690/05), and Pink (HX9690/07) finish.
Please note that the black ExpertClean toothbrush comes with black case, charger, and stand, and the white model comes with white accessories.
Does the pink Expert Clean have a pink travel case? Sadly it does not. The Pink HX9690/07 comes with the same boring white accessories like the white model.
One of the most important features of the Philips Sonicare Expert Clean toothbrush is that it has multiple cleaning modes and intensity choices. Users prefer the use of this brand and model because it allows them to choose whether to have maximum, sensitive, or massage brushing performance.
This product has also been highly rated by customers who have sensitive teeth and gums. With its use, they no longer have to suffer from hard cleaning, which is actually common in other kinds of toothbrushes. This toothbrush functions softly but assuring that all plaque is removed.
Customers were also confident that this kind of toothbrush is able to deliver the results that were promised. In fact, even in a period that is shorter than what has been advertised. Its deep and smooth cleaning technology provided users with the best in oral care systems.
However, in spite of the customer benefits that were earlier mentioned, there were some who reacted negatively because the toothbrush produces some noise when used. There were also some who complained that it does not attach itself firmly on the base of the charger.
I was surprised to see that there are not so many Sonicare app fans out there. While some users appreciate the information the application provides, many users have decided against using it. There are 2 main reasons. First, many users are worried about their privacy. And there is also a question about the real usefulness of the data the toothbrush tracks.

Philips Sonicare ExpertClean 7500 vs 7300
The Philips Sonicare ExpertClean 7500 is a more popular model sold by Amazon and many other retailers.
With the Philips Sonicare ExpertClean 7300 you get exactly the same toothbrush for less money and without a couple of features:
- It lacks White+ brushing mode but you can still enjoy 3 modes (Clean, Deep Clean+, and Gum Health) and 3 intensities
- It has the travel case WITHOUT charging function
- It is available only in black
It is a lot harder to find a store that carries the 7300 model. At the moment of updating this review (December 2019), the Amazon.com and other popular US online retailers do not offer ExpertClean 7300.
If you do not want to pay the full price of Sonicare 7500 but could not find the 7300 model, please check out the Sonicare ProtectiveClean 6100. The comparison table and a link to ProtectiveClean 6100 review is provided below.

Additional Items To Consider
If you are going to buy Philips Sonicare 7500 electric toothbrush, you may consider buying a few supplies and accessories.
People often add a 2-pack of Genuine Philips Sonicare C3 Premium Plaque Control Toothbrush Heads (HX9042/65) and a 4-pack of Genuine Philips Sonicare W3 Premium White Toothbrush Heads (HX9064/65) in order to replace brush heads when necessary.
After taking a quick look at the specifications I can tell that this model has every chance to become the best electric toothbrush of 2020.
It has the same features as the Sonicare DiamondClean 9300 minus a few questionable design features, and you may have to pay top dollar for if you chose the DiamondClean.
