Orca Health Launches KidsDental App for iPad

New App Uses Animation to Teach Kids How to Properly Brush and Floss

PARK CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Mar 6, 2012) - Orca Health is proud to announce its KidsDental App for iPad is now available on the App Store.

The KidsDental App is divided into four sections designed to teach young users about basic tooth care:

  • Explore -- takes advantage of Orca's 3D engine to enable 360-degree examination, with full zoom, of the jaw and teeth.

  • Conditions -- uses animation and interactivity to teach users about cavities, early tooth loss, abscessed teeth, broken teeth, late loss of teeth, and gum disease.

  • Learn -- the touch interface of the iPad is used to learn to floss, understand the impact of healthy foods on dental health, practice good habits, learn to brush, and finally practice brushing. The rich animation of KidsDental makes this app entertaining and educational.

  • My Teeth -- KidsDental comes with a customizable "My Teeth" section that allows children and their parents to input data about their teeth and significant events, such as losing their first tooth, into a calendar. They can also use emoticons to select "How they feel" about a given event. Additionally, users can take and share pictures via email.

"We are excited to launch our eleventh app on the App Store, providing children and their parents with an entertaining and educational dental app," said Matt Berry, Founder and CEO of Orca Health. "Dental health and oral hygiene are important components of a child's development. Pamphlets and dentists' lectures are clearly not getting the job done; we believe KidsDental, with its beautiful animations, will do a better job of teaching children to take care of their teeth."

The KidsDental App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at
