KIDS DENTAL APPS!

Screen Shot 2018-08-28 at 1.27.16 pm

It’s a world full of tablets, android phones and smart TVs… and kids LOVE THEM.

We often here parents remark how hard it is to get their little tots  OFF devices and how even more difficult it is to get them into the  bathroom to brush their teeth for TWO WHOLE MINUTES. It’s tough. We hear you.

So we’ve listed down a few of our favourite apps for helping kids clean their teeth better.

Hopefully, it makes for more fun and less arguments during brushing time…

This app makes brushing fun even for older children. The toothbrush timer app plays 2 minutes of music taken from the user’s device to encourage brushing for an effective length of time. The app also allows users to set reminders to brush twice a day, floss, use a mouthrinse and when next to see their dentist, hygienist, therapist or orthodontist. Kids can choose the color of the screen and timer to match their toothbrush, bathroom, or they can just pick their favorite color combinations.
