Tooth Brushing Boot Camp Goes Trans-Atlantic
Tooth Camp, the iOS app which strives to improve tooth brushing habits by putting users in a boot camp setting, has gone trans-Atlantic, adding English and Welsh drill instructors to the existing American taskmaster.
The app is a countdown timer on steroids - a drill instructor talks to users whilst they brush their teeth, offering encouragement, dental health tips, "constructive”
"It's not enough to just display a timer on a screen," explains developer Iain Brown, "People need to be engaged and entertained if you want to keep their mind from wandering. If they lose interest in what they’re doing, then they will give up and their dental health will suffer as a result."
Tooth Camp breaks the mouth up into quadrants; the more structured approach ensuring that sufficient time is focussed in each area of the mouth. There is also a custom “Maggot Engine” which ensures that every commentary delivered by a drill instructor is different.
"It was a bit of a no-brainer adding the new instructors,”
