Sometime last year we posted a blog article about some cute dentist/dental apps available for the Android and iPhone. We wrote about Brush DJ, which is a surprisingly fun and effective way to get kids into brushing their teeth (if you’re unaware, Brush DJ is an app that plays your music for two minutes while you brush your teeth). We talked about the StarTeeth app in which you (or your child, most likely) chooses a brushing “mate” from a roster of characters and brush together for two minutes. There were a few other apps—ones that cover general dental FAQs, ones that let you operate on Dracula’s teeth—but overall they were merely cute distractions.
Virtual Dental Surgery
2014 has brought a new dental app. One that blows other ones that have come before it out of the water. It’s called Virtual Dental Surgery. As mentioned before, there have already been dental apps in which you play the dentist, removing stains and filling cavities. In Virtual Dental Surgery once again you’re operating on animated game characters, but the steps and actions you have to perform are surprisingly detailed. This app makes you go through real procedures:
That’s all we can say about Virtual Dental Surgery here. It’s a free app and definitely worth a look. Once you’ve beaten the game for the first time, when you play again you have the option of acting as an intern or a specialist. And unlike other dental app games, you can lose in this one. For more information just check out the Virtual Dental Surgery synopsis.
