Brush to the Music

Tired of nagging your children to take care of their teeth?  These days, you can apparently let your iPhone or iPad take over the chore.

The free “Brush DJ” smartphone app was recently brought to our attention. The app, available on iTunes, pulls music from your iPhone or iPad and plays for two minutes – the length of time that the American Dental Association recommends we brush, twice a day. brush dj 200

Developed in 2012 by a British dentist, and apparently downloaded already in 171 countries, Brush D.J. reminds kids to floss, sets dental reminders and even tells you when you might want to change your toothbrush.

We’re all for any tool, game or information reminder that helps keep our patient’s teeth and gums healthy. Has anybody tried this or any of the other dental apps out there? Please send us your app comments!
