Designed for children ages 4-6, my family first learned about Colgate’s My Bright Smile app when I first introduced it to my daughters. With two little girls in the house, just a year apart in age, it was a relief to find a fun app which appealed to them as well as helped them learn about ways to have better dental health. This year I was able to share it with my godson, reminding his mom about how much fun the girls had with it. What’s so special about Colgate My Bright Smiles? I have 10 or more reasons why it’s a good idea to brighten our child’s day with the Colgate My Bright Smiles App.
My Top 10 Reasons for Sharing My Bright Smiles with Family
The app includes five games, like “Visit the Dentist,” “Swipe the Sweets” and “Brush the Teeth.” There’s even a two-minute song and countdown video that helped keep our kids brushing until every tooth is clean for the full 2 minutes recommended by dentist. The girls may be older, but a chance to play big sister was too much temptation as they showed my godson how to do everything in the app. My 9 year old became fascinated with the Puzzles as we showed it to their little buddy. She really didn’t want to give the iPad back!
Throughout the games and activities children are provided with helpful hints to encourage them to work towards good dental health. A special expert appears on screen and reminds children to do the following activities and more with fun, positive reinforcement:
- Brush with fluoride toothpaste after breakfast and before bedtime
- Floss every day
- Visit your dentist regularly
- Limit the number of times you eat sweet and sticky snacks
Even more reasons why you will like the My Bright Smiles app
Parents LOVE the word free especially when it means our children are learning valuable life skills, and our family is no different. The award winning Colgate My Bright Smiles app is FREE and available on both iTunes and Google Play! As parents we also worry about the safety and security of our children, that’s another reason parents are going to love the Bright Smiles app. While there is a “Parents Corner” the “My Bright Smile” app does not store any personal information, and no data about its use is sent back to Colgate.
Colgate is known for it’s commitment to dental health with a variety of dental products for adults and children. They use this knowledge and the cornerstone of an award-winning dental health education curriculum to create My Bright Smiles. Developed by global experts, Colgate’s multi-cultural materials help illustrate how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Today, the educational curriculum has also become a part of the permanent school curriculum of many school districts. Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® has also reached more than half a billion children and is available in 30 languages.
