5 Great Dental Apps for Children of All Ages

Suggested by Your Lynnwood Pediatric Dentist

2 little boys playing computer gamesTeaching your children proper oral care from an early age is very important for their future. Not only does this lessen the chances that they will develop common oral problems, like bad breath or gum disease, it will influence their overall health and value of life in the future.

Don’t worry, instilling proper early dental care practices into your child’s life doesn’t have to be boring or hard. Your Lynnwood pediatric dentist and team at Alderwood Children’s Dentistry has searched high and low for ways to equip parents with essential tools that can help make this process exciting. Kids these days are super tech savvy. Here are a few fun dental apps that we believe parents should download to help solidify their children’s understanding of what proper oral hygiene is, encourage proper care and prepare them for great smiles for the rest of their lives.

Most importantly, it helps to make the dental clinic experience a little brighter. In this app your child will be the dentist and help various super heroes fix their teeth. Your child will choose the tools to use and try to relieve each super hero from the oral pain they are experiencing. The faster they do it, the safer the world will be. Even super heroes need dentists too!
