Review: Workday Dentist

I recently reviewed Merge Mobile's Storybook Maker app, and was excited to have the opportunity to review another one of their apps! This time, I will be reviewing Workday Dentist.

Disclaimer: This app was provided to me to try; however, all opinions are my own. No other compensation was received. 

Workday Dentist is a "teeth"rific app that includes the following tools so your students can appropriately "treat" the patient:

1. Power Drill
2. Gold and Silver Cap Installers
3. Tooth Extraction Tool
4. Tooth Sticker Applicator
5. Toothbrush
6. Braces Applicator
7. Gas Mask
8. Scraper Tool

You can pick one of 3 patients...for some reason, all my students picked the grandpa!

They loved picking different toothpaste colors. Don't you wish you could do this in real life?

What I Love:
1. Functional: this is a great way to discuss dental hygiene, manners, and why we brush our teeth. It also might help relieve some anxiety that some students might feel about going to the dentist. 
2. Motivating: My students really loved being able to change the colors of the toothpaste! I had one student that got a kick out of pulling the teeth out with the "chomper"tool. 
3. Language Expansion: There were a ton of opportunities to pull language out of my students. We talked about what was wrong with the patient's teeth, what color toothpaste we wanted to use, and what treats to feed the patient.

What I Would Love To See:
1. I would love it if the name of the tool was spoken when you picked it up. One of my students asked me what the name of something was and I didn't know!
2. A fun dental hygiene quiz might a great, educational thing to add!

Overall, I loved the app and so did my students. I used it with students ages 4-7, but I think older students would enjoy it too!

Merge Mobile has been kind enough to offer 3 codes for me to giveaway, so enter below!! Make sure you head on over to their Facebook page and give them a like!


  1. I think the kiddos will love this app and it will be very motivating for targeting many different goals (WH questions, following directions, language, social stories, etc! Thanks for the review and giveaway! :)
