Brush Off is a game that teaches young kids about maintaining great oral health and oral health habits.  Oral health habits are formed between ages five and six, hence Brush Off addresses these children.

See how we combined motion interfaces with health behavior theory and fun music to create a new tool to improve kids attitudes and behaviors around oral health.
