About Brush DJ
Free, evidence-based app that motivates an effective oral hygiene routine.
The main feature of the Brush DJ app is a timer which plays two minutes of music from the user’s device or streaming service. This makes the mundane task of brushing for the correct length of time more enjoyable and therefore more likely to happen. The app also contains the evidence-based oral health information given in the Public Health England document: ‘Delivering Better Oral Health’. No passwords, in-app purchases or personal details are required and it can be used with any toothbrush.
Ben is an NHS general dental practitioner working in York and is passionate about ensuring all patients have and maintain good oral health throughout their lives to avoid the need for invasive and sometimes expensive dental treatment. Ben’s ambition is to help all children to grow up free from dental decay and the consequent need for possibly distressing treatment under general or local anaesthetic. Brush DJ aims to do this by motivating an enjoyable, evidence-based oral hygiene self-care routine that is part of everyday life and is available to all children and young people, anywhere.
