What is Brush DJ?

Brush DJ is an award-winning, free toothbrush timer app that plays 2 minutes of music taken from the user’s device to encourage brushing for an effective length of time. The app also allows users to set reminders to brush twice a day, floss, use a mouthrinse and when next to see their dentist, hygienist, therapist or orthodontist. Evidence-based age specific information is given as per the NHS toolkit ‘Delivering Better Oral Health’.

The app was built around the information given in the NHS Delivering Better Oral Health Toolkit.
