Dentists can inspire kids to brush with new 2min2x gaming app

In an effort to motivate parents and caregivers to take action to reduce their children’s risk of oral disease, the Ad Council and the Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives have released a new, free mobile gaming app called Toothsavers.

As part of the Kids’ Healthy Mouths campaign, this interactive game makes tooth brushing fun by encouraging kids, ages 3–6, to save friendly fairy tale characters from the evil, cavity-creating sorceress, who cast a wicked tooth-rotting spell on the kingdom. The goal of the game is to motivate kids to save their own teeth by brushing for two minutes, twice a day. The game also allows kids and parents to keep track of their brushing progress as well as morning and nighttime reminders.

Toothsavers is now available for free in the App Store and Google Play (both smartphones and tablet version). For more information, including ways you can promote Toothsavers to your patients, visit 2min2x.adcouncil.org/toothsavers.
