We all know that kids don’t always do what they should. And it’s not always easy to monitor everything they do. But effective dental care is crucial and anything parents can do to promote good habits when kids are young will pay dividends down the road.
Fortunately, dental apps for kids can be a handy way to get kids to appreciate the importance of dental health. Apps can also teach kids about effective brushing and flossing habits. And there are even apps to monitor how long kids brush while reminding them to brush thoroughly.
Crazy Fun Kid Dentist is rated T for Teen, but younger kids will probably enjoy it too. This free app allows kids to play dentist while they learn about various aspects of the dental profession, including:
Crazy Fun Kid Dentist got a 4-star rating on a scale of five stars from users. The most common user complaints are that the app can be slow and there’s too many adds.
Toothbrush Timer is rated E for Everyone. It’s an easy-to use free app which helps monitor how long kids are brushing. It received a 3.5 star rating on a scale of five from viewers. That’s probably because Toothbrush Timer doesn’t feature fancy graphics or famous cartoon characters.
But this app helps kids brush more effectively, causing parents to rave about it. A parent who gave Toothbrush Timer five stars says:
Great for my kids I like this. It is simple, easy to use, and very specific in that it tells them when to switch spots without me hovering… which means THEY like it, too.
Super Dentist Kids Fun Surgery got a perfect five-star rating from users. It’s rated E for Everyone, and it’s geared for younger users. The app is free, but it does feature ads. It teaches kids how to treat oral disease and practice effective dental strategy. It’s a fun game with entertaining graphics.
Parents really love Super Dentist Kids Fun Surgery, calling it “cute,” “fun,” and “nice.” One parent says:
Best game for kids and I love the background music makes the kids very Happy 🙂
Parents are busy. And when it comes to encouraging effective dental habits, any help they can get is welcome. Another important thing you can do for your kids is to make sure they see Dr. Grubb for regular checkups at least twice a year.
