It took this father and son three years to develop a unique dental instrument called InterFloss. John and his son LJ are originally from Ghana but are based in Sydney, Australia. They now hold the global patent for their design, a revolutionary inter-dental cavity cleaning device. In this interview, they talk about the unusual circumstance leading to their invention designed for better oral hygiene:
My name is John from Sydney Australia where I work as a full-time Project Controls Specialist. I come from a manufacturing engineering technology background but I have been working on Construction Projects all my working life. I lived and worked in various parts of the world but for now, Australia is home. Inter-Floss is an idea developed by LJ, my 13-year old son and me. LJ is a year-8 student here in Sydney. LJ is aspiring to become a medical Doctor.
