While we’re conscious about the amount of time our children are in front of screens, we can’t deny there are some great apps that teach healthy oral habits and encourage your children to brush their teeth. At the end of the day, we’re all looking for ways to help increase education tools that excite our children to grab their toothbrush. Below are some of our favorite toothbrushing apps that can improve your child’s brushing and flossing habits.
