Brushy

Brushy is an application that combines a timer with a map of the mouth, instructing kids how long to spend brushing different areas.

Not only does this make brushing more interactive and enjoyable, it also ensures kids don’t just engage in superficial dental hygiene.

Nothing would be more frustrating than ensuring your child has been brushing day and night only to find that she has a cavity because she has been missing one area of the mouth. Brushy gives kids the simple guidance they need to brush effectively.

KidsDental

KidsDental is an app that explores the anatomy of the mouth. It uses animation and text to identify key areas, the kinds of dental problems that can occur, and the kinds of strategies you can use to prevent such problems. As a child, having your dentist tell you something is one thing, but having it come to life with lively colour and animation makes it easier and more enjoyable to understand.

Chomper Chums

Chomper Chums helps parents to help their children develop effective dental habits. The app allows children to choose three cute cartoon animals to look after. The animals instruct your child in various dental hygiene strategies and how best to perform them. As your child successfully completes different tasks, they earn coins that can be exchanged for food items to feed their new digital pets. The empathetic attachment to the pets gives children a greater vested interest in maintaining their oral and dental health.

The villain, Placulus, and his goons attempt to take down the player’s teeth with a variety of sugary treats.
