You may have heard about the exciting program that’s helping kids stay healthy here in the U.S. and around the world; the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® program. It’s reached over a half a billion kids in the U.S. and across the globe with free dental screenings and oral health education. Its award-winning dental health education program helps kids build healthy oral care habits, and in turn, boosts self esteem.
And, Colgate’s free app for kids is fun to use at home! The “My Bright Smile” app includes five fun games like “Visit the Dentist”, “Swipe the Sweets”, “Fun with Floss,” and “Brush the Teeth”. The games are a great way for kids to learn about dental health while they pass the time in the car, or maybe while waiting in the dentists waiting room! There’s even a two-minute brushing song to encourage kids to brush for the proper amount of time. This easy-to-navigate app is made for kids age four to six, and I particularly like the highlighted, read-along instructions for each game.
The free “My Bright Smile” app is available on iTunes and Google Play making it super easy for kids to use on a mobile device while brushing in the morning and at bedtime. Daily brushing, flossing, and regular dental check ups are fundamental to life-long dental health, and along with the “My Bright Smile” app, every kids’ dental health routine will shine. Check out what these kids have learned from the app!
