Dutch dentists develop dental first-aid APP – for when you’re on the golf course


From Dental Tribune: UTRECHT, Netherlands: Dutch dentists have launched a dental app for Apple mobile devices that patients can consult for advice when their dentist is not available. The functionality of the app is based on questions about and possible solutions for common dental problems to help the user obtain first-aid instructions. Toothache Pro is a dental application intended to offer professional advice for more than 60 frequent dental problems.
