App description

This simple educational app provides information about the value of cleaning teeth regularly. The Wiggles play a song that lasts for the 2 minutes that dentists recommend children should spend cleaning their teeth. Parents can place their child’s name in a reminder system on their phone that alerts them at regular intervals to remind their children to clean their teeth. They can also reward them with an electronic trophy or carrot and add this to a chart within the app.

Reviewers comments

This app provides a novel and fun way to teach children about the importance of cleaning their teeth regularly. However, as this is a habit that needs to be formed early and continued throughout life, the app should not be the only method employed by parents to ensure that children are forming good habits in this area.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
