Brush DJ makes brushing your teeth fun and effective!
This award winning, free, NHS approved app, with no adverts, plays 2 minutes of music, taken at random or from a playlist, from your devices music library and has a visual display showing where to brush- finally brushing becomes less boring!
Brush DJ has been developed by a dentist for anyone wanting to help prevent gum disease and tooth decay to maintain a healthy smile and fresh breath. Also, by using this app you will rediscover your music collection- from guilty pleasures to holiday anthems :)
Brush DJ works with any toothbrush and also allows you to set reminders to:
•Change your toothbrush every 3 months
•Brush twice a day
•Floss/clean interdentally every day
•Use a mouthrinse if appropriate
•When you next need to visit the dentist
•When you next need to visit the hygienist
The latest age specific information is given as per the Public Health England toolkit ‘Delivering Better Oral Health’. Short animated videos showing how to carry out basic oral hygiene tasks are linked to.

What's New in Version 3.1
Thank you for all the feedback on how the Brush DJ app could be improved :)
* Updated the information for different age groups following consultation with Public Health England who wrote the latest version of the excellent Delivering Better Oral Health toolkit.
* Reminders now use Local Notifications instead of Push Notifications. This means you will get reminders even without an internet connection.
* Made some minor user interface improvements.
Once again thank you for your help and feedback – any suggestion on how this version of the app can be improved are always welcome via the website www.brushdj.com.
Brush DJ is Wonderful!
A really cool app! Very simple to use and it makes children want to brush for the whole 2 minutes 😀
It has useful daily reminders when to brush; when it's time to replace the toothbrush, or you can be reminded for a dentist and hygienist appointments!
Great app but doesn't work properly!
My little one loves this app and it really does encourage him to brush but the music keeps going silent. The lights keep going around the circle but the music stops, I have to adjust the volume up and down to get the music to start playing again. Weird, it could be fantastic!
I honestly love this app because I get super bored whilst brushing my teeth and could never be bothered to do it for long enough. This app helps me a lot with that.
