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!

Motivation to clean teeth

I was worried that my daughter wasn’t cleaning her teeth for long enough and was desperate to find something to motivate her to keep going! This app helps! I had a bit of trouble getting the specific single I wanted to play, but the developer was extremely helpful and the solution was just that on my iPhone 7 I needed to purchase the single through iTunes Store (I downloaded the free iTunes Store app first) and then buy it for 99p. Then Brush DJ could see it in the ‘Select a Song from my Device’ option. I don’t have any paid music packages so that got the song onto my device. Thanks again for the help! I do think having her favourite song will help massively in keeping her brushing properly!

Really focuses on The optimum time to clean teeth properly

Having just visited a dentist due to a very uncomfortable tooth I I was told the gum was infected due to a build up of tartar. Was told tooth would have to come out eventually but dentist cleaned tartar and said to visit hygienist regularly to keep tooth a little longer. At the age of 77 I have few teeth left so took advice seriously.
I must admit my teeth cleaning was done rather hurriedly and this app plays music of your choice for 2 mins.
Brilliant - so simple but so effective.

Brushing made achievable

Even as adults I think it can be hard to judge 2 minutes brushing, especially when in a rush. Brush DJ helps you keep to time visually and by sound and plays any tune you want on your phone whilst doing it. Nice way to start/ end the day. Thanks to the team that had the idea and developed it through so we can use it!
