Smile Buddy – an app to promote dental hygiene

Smile Buddy – Calgary, AB and Burnaby, BC

Lack of education or motivation to build healthy oral habits can be very detrimental to the general human health, although this issue is often ignored or denounced. Bad oral hygiene is proven to be directly linked to chronic diseases such as diabetes, respiratory illness, cardiovascular disease, kidney complications, and much more. We have found two demographics that have reported to show higher rates of bad oral health; individuals with mental disorders, and those with lower socioeconomic status. We find it important to target these groups as the longer oral health is neglected, the more financially destructive and emotionally pressuring in the long run. Our plan is to construct a multi-tab structure app with both an engaging idle game learning component, and a routine forming calendar function. Additionally, we’ll include resources for individuals to find or apply for budget friendly or free dental services.
