I recently worked with Colgate on their app called My Bright Smile, which helps kids learn about brushing. Half a billion kids around the world have benefitted from the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures oral health education program. Now, it’s offering this free educational app designed for kids aged 4-6.
The app offers five games:
Visit the Dentist – Take a trip to the dentist while Dr. Rabbit as he talks about the different tools found in the office, then you tap on them.
Brush The Teeth – Pick a character and a toothbrush and help the patient brush their teeth
Fun with Floss – Clean out all the items in the maze to spell a word and then match the pictures to the correct word
Swipe the Sweets – Swipe the treats that are not good for your teeth as they pass on the conveyer belt, so only the good foods are “rung” up
Picture This – Slide the tiles to put the puzzle together with tips from Dr. Rabbit along the way
Brushing Song – This song plays for 2 minutes while your child brushes. This comes in handy for those kids that like to rush, like mine. That way, they can actually see how much time they have left!
My Bright Smile is available for free on the Apple App Store
Five tips to keep your child’s teeth healthy:
- • Brush with fluoride toothpaste after breakfast and before bedtime
• Floss every day
• Visit your dentist regularly (at least twice a year)
• Brush for at least two minutes each time
• Limit the number of times you eat sweet and sticky snacks
