We have quite a few educational apps downloaded on our family tablet for E. These apps teach her all sorts of things such as counting, matching, reading readiness and more. We don’t come across a lot of apps that promote and encourage oral health so when I was recently introduced to the My Bright Smile app from Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures, we couldn’t wait to download it and explore what the app has to offer!
If you’re not familiar with the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® program, It’s a classroom curriculum which is among the most far-reaching, successful children’s oral health initiatives in the world. The program reaches children in 80 countries with free dental screenings and oral health education.
Half a billion kids around the world have benefitted from the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures oral health education program and now it’s offering a fun and free educational app! The My Bright Smile app is designed for kids age 4-6 and features five games which include “Visit the Dentist,” “Swipe the Sweets” and “Brush the Teeth.” There’s also a two-minute song that will help keep your kids brushing until every tooth is clean. Key messages from the app for children and parents to learn together while playing My Bright Smile include:
- Brush with fluoride toothpaste after breakfast and before bedtime
- Floss every day
- Visit your dentist regularly
- Limit the number of times you eat sweet and sticky snacks
E loves this app and exploring all of the fantastic games that are included! She really likes the “Swipe the Sweets” game where children are presented with different foods that come across the screen and are encouraged to swipe the treats that are not good for teeth.
E really likes brushing her teeth along to the brushing song. Sometime is hard to keep track of how long your little one is brushing for snd if they are brushing long enough so the timer is a great way to make sure that your child is brushing for the full two minutes that they should be.
For me, the best part of this free app is that it’s encouraging healthy habits and dental hygiene! The My Bright Smile app is available for download in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for FREE!
NOTE: The “My Bright Smile” app does not store any personal information, and no data about its use is sent back to Colgate.
