The latest version of the DentalMonitoring app includes a gamification feature to help engage patients through fun and competition.

DentalMonitoring has released a new version of its app with a gamification feature to help engage patients and spark friendly competition. 

The new feature offers patients a fun and interactive experience  to enhance motivation and compliance, especially for teens.

Recent analyses of health care apps have shown introducing game-like features to the design can change patient behavior by rewarding them for keeping up with treatment. 

Adding fun and goal-based elements to a regular task will make that task more rewarding.

In the app, patients with fixed or removable appliances can unlock special badges for activities like taking scans on time, treatment milestones, getting consecutive GOs, treatment anniversaries, and sharing badges for social media.

The release has now been rolled out to all DentalMonitoring patients, new and existing.
