Toothbrush is a studio album by Dr. Dog. It was self-released in 2002 by Dr. Dog, although the official release date and record label is speculated. Little is known on the official release and mass distributions of the album.

Dr. Dog American rock band

Dr. Dog is an American rock band based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Its lineup consists of Toby Leaman, Scott McMicken, Frank McElroy, Zach Miller (keyboard), and Eric Slick (drums). Lead vocal duties are shared between Leaman and McMicken, with all members contributing harmonies. In addition, each band member has a nickname beginning with the letter T, and they have explained that friends of the band also receive nicknames, which are drawn from aspects of their lives and personalities.


Stylistically, the 60s pop roots of Dr. Dog's style are apparent, presented in a lo-fi quality for which they are renowned. The album is considered more of a debut than Psychedelic Swamp mainly due to its availability on the iTunes Music Store and major online music retailers, such as Amazon .
