An App To Combat Caries

Our Dentists have found a useful app for the children (and parents) of Reading.

Why Do Children (and Adults!) Need Help?

Available on the Apple App Store and Google Play, Brush DJ also allows users to set daily reminders to brush twice a day, floss and use a mouth-rinse (most effective separate to brushing).

The app also allows you to reminders for your next dental exam, hygienist or orthodontic visit, so you never have to miss an appointment again.

Brush DJ also has useful oral hygiene advice for everyone, which you can also find on the Delivering Better Oral Health Tool-kit. It was designed by dentists and has been downloaded all over the world. It is the first oral health app to be approved by the NHS.

At Prospect Street Dental Practice, we think this is a great tool to help reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
