With this call to arms we are thrilled to roll out the red carpet for the official Android release of the first and only educational trading card game that helps you develop healthy dental care habits — Dentacare: Jaws of Battle.

Disclaimer: If you have taken part in the Alpha and Beta testing of the game, make sure you uninstall previous versions before you download the official release. Your old account will not work, as progress has been reset, in order to prevent unfair player advantage.

How to Save Dentaria

We started this initiative, as a way to tackle the resistance towards one of the most vital healthcare habits. This same habit is also unfortunately a great drudge that plagues both adults and children alike — the routine of brushing teeth and taking care of one’s oral hygiene. Fortunately we were not alone in our quest.

With our trusted ally psychology by our side, Dentacare: Jaws of Battle was born — a game of skill and an implicit learning experience for all ages. Thrown into the pit, players use cards with a dental theme, to fling special effects at each other and defend their jaw from enemy attacks for a set of turns. The player with the most teeth standing in the end is proclaimed victor.

By doing so, we are subliminally reinforcing the player’s learning experience, as they understand, which characters and themes have positive effects on their digital teeth and which don’t. Not only that, but a personal responsibility for the player’s dental wellbeing is ingrained through this mechanic, as they strive to do their best to protect it, with each conscious action taken towards victory, or eventual demise.

Fortunately for players, losing teeth is not permanent (unlike in real life) and they have a chance to recoup their losses, quick and easy, just by brushing their teeth. Thus a monumental shift in perception occurs, as the chore moves from “I have to” to “I want to” — the dreaded routine becomes a priceless tool for victory and the state of their teeth a core determinant.

This is how a boring habit is gamified into a thrilling experience and a glorious victory for dental health around the globe. Here’s how it works:

A Jawbreaking Combat Experience

You are the chosen ones and the fate of Dentaria is in your hands. Lock jaws and face your opponents in head to head combat to determine who can keep most of their teeth standing.

The Path that Lies Ahead

The official release is far from our journey’s end, with plenty more improvements on the horizon. This first version of the game is single player only, however this announcement also marks the beginning of the development of the multiplayer version, as well. Players will be able to challenge others from around the globe, including friends and family in the arena. More personalisation is also something that we will tackle in the upcoming releases to give players an even bigger immersion within Dentaria.

Things have only just begun. There is so much more to look forward to, as we pave the way that lies ahead — brick by brick towards a new age of dental experience for all ages.
