If you haven’t ventured into the world of Apps since becoming obsessed with teeth, you’d be surprised just how many they have made specifically for dEnTaL NeRdS.
The release of the new iPhone 7 had us thinking in full app mode, so we had a chat about our favorite Dental Apps which we obvi have to share with our fellow Dental Babes:
1. Brush DJ: Are you a Dental Mom? If so, you probably made sure your little one knew how to floss his teeth before saying his first word ;) Well if you’re potty training a little one and teaching them to brush properly at the same time – things can get a little wild. That’s where the Brush DJ comes in, a tune comes on for the proper time that you should be brushing! When the music stops, it’s time to spit and rinse. Brushing made fun! Oh and we won’t judge you if you use it too! *dancing girl emoji*

2. Dental Post: How awesome would it be to have all job and event opportunities for Dental Professionals in one place? Well, Dental Post has taken that wish and turned it into a reality. With both a website and an app that allows you to put your Dental Experience online for local Dental offices to see, it’s never been easier to find the office of your dreams! Oh, and they have events too! So you’ll never miss an opportunity to mingle with your fellow Dental Squads!
