The free multi-award winning Brush DJ app is suitable for use by all ages and features in the new NHS Apps Library. This toothbrush timer app plays 2 minutes of music from your devices, cloud or streaming service - to make toothbrushing for an effective length of time less boring! 

Brush DJ has been developed by a dentist for anyone wanting to reduce their risk of gum disease and tooth decay. The app helps keep your smile healthy and breath fresh. Also, by using this app you will find new songs and rediscover your music collection- from guilty pleasures to holiday anthems!

Brush DJ works with either a manual or electric toothbrush and allows you to set reminders to:
•Change your toothbrush/brush head every 3 months
•Brush at least twice a day
•Floss/clean interdentally every day
•Use a mouthrinse at a different time to toothpaste
•When next to visit dentist, hygienist, orthodontist or dental therapist

You can choose the colour of the screen and timer to match your toothbrush, bathroom or just pick your favourite colour combinations. There are short animated videos showing how to carry basic oral hygiene tasks such as flossing, using and interdental brush and a manual toothbrush. The latest evidence-based age specific information is given from the Public Health England toolkit ‘Delivering Better Oral Health’. Free updates will be available whenever new oral health information is released.

Feedback on how you feel Brush DJ can be improved is welcomed via Here you can also let us know your favourite song to brush to, which might make it into the weekly Brush DJ Top 5 chart!

Great app when it’s usable

Great app to have when it works. Timer sounds can be heard from other rooms when brushing which is great for a charging phone. Visual timer is nice. Unfortunately the app hasn’t been updated in a while and so it crashes a lot and the music doesn’t work if you exit the app or turn off your screen.

Thank you for the kind review :) We are looking for funding to build a greatly improved version of the app. Please keep your fingers-crossed we get some!

I recommend adding the choice of what music you listen to other than shuffle
