Brush DJ is an award-winning, free toothbrush timer app that plays 2 minutes of music taken from the user’s device to encourage brushing for an effective length of time.
The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry have produced three child friendly videos to promote toothbrushing and prevention for children and young people.
The videos combine live action with computer animation. The aim is to give dental teams resources to share with parents and carers to inspire them to keep children’s teeth healthy. Particularly at this difficult time where access to dental care is limited. Dr Ranj- NHS doctor, TV presenter, author and celebrity contestant on “Strictly Come Dancing”stars in these videos with his sidekick Supertooth – the voice of actor Gemma Oaten who rose to fame in TV soap Emmerdale. They guide children in different age categories on how to brush teeth. The videos are aimed at parents of children aged 0-3, 3-6 and 7+
