United Concordia Dental is proud to present Chomper Chums®, a dental hygiene focused mobile app. The app is designed to enable parents to help their child to learn proper brushing techniques and to establish long lasting and healthy oral wellness habits. The target audience includes children between the ages of 4 and 11 years of age.
The purpose of the app is to help children to develop good oral wellness habits at an early age that will last a lifetime. These include brushing for the recommended time period of two minutes, twice per day, as well as flossing and rinsing. To engage children while they brush and learn, the app introduces three fun, friendly and lovable animal characters that are named by the child, and with whom they interact each time they brush. Characters include a lion, horse and alligator – all of whom help the child to learn how to brush properly.
Using colorful animation, the app also helps children to make sure that they reach all quadrants of their mouths when brushing by showing the inside of their animal character’s mouth while they brush. The child can chase “sugar bugs” around each quadrant, for 30 seconds per quadrant. When the child brushes correctly twice per day and for the recommended 2 minute time period, they earn coins that are used to purchase food items to help to care for their animal.
In caring for their animal, the child is encouraged to select healthy food items, but can also select less healthy choices to feed their animal, such as snacks rather than vegetables. However, the health of their animal character is influenced by their choices, teaching them about the importance of making their own healthy eating choices. Also, children who continue to brush regularly for extended days can earn the “Super Smile Award” which allows them to send their animal character on a new adventure!
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
This version of the app concludes the Philadelphia Zoo ticket promotion. It also includes bug fixes and performance tuning.
Ratings and Reviews
This is just awesome.
I never write reviews but I was so impressed by this simple app. It clearly was made with the health of your child in mind. They have come up with a way to encourage healthy hygiene and eating habits. I like how it shows where to brush and floss while the timer is going during the toothbrushing. I think it helps my son to get a little bit more of an understanding of what I’m doing when I’m brushing his teeth, and therefore helps him to feel more relaxed. I think that this will help him to brush the correct way on his own eventually. It’s also really neat how you earn coins and points for brushing and flossing and rinsing and then you can use those coins you have earned to buy your character food and drink, and you can choose to buy either healthy food or unhealthy food for your character, and those choices actually make an impact on the health of your character. So the child is being rewarded for good oral hygiene habits as well as good eating habits in this truly exceptional, yet simplistic tooth brushing app.
Easy to use
This app was a game changer in my house. My 5-year-old grandson lives with me while his mother is deployed with the Navy. He and I have a wonderful relationship with the exception of one thing: brushing teeth. He hated it. Hated the taste of toothpaste, too. Bedtime was a struggle just to get him to brush. Well, I heard about this app on the “Sawbones” podcast. What a difference! Now brushing twice a day is fun! We brush our teeth together as we follow the animals as they brush. The little germs are cute too! And one thing I learned along the way is that I was not brushing long enough! So Chompers taught me something too. This free app clearly had a lot of thought and work put into it by its designers. I wish to thank them for offering it for free and for making brushing fun in my house!
Get’s my kids to brush without a fight!
I love this app. My 3 year old has Sensory Processing Disorder and it used to be a knock down drag out fight to get him to brush his teeth. Recently he and his little brother (19 months) have been obsessed using this. They brush for the 2 minutes, and then want to go through the floss and rinse part to continue to brush their teeth. Fantastic app for anyone with a headstrong kiddo!
