Is It Any Good?

What could have been a semi-entertaining diversion for kids that instructed them on the importance of oral hygiene goes horribly wrong in this insipid, dreadful title. Crazy Dentist is so stuffed with ads and promotions that it's akin to app junk mail. It's also borderline bait and switch, as the app's main menu shows off an ape as a patient (which will appeal to kids), but to play with that character, you'll have to pay $2.99 (as he's not included among the free options).

The gameplay quickly gets repetitive and while we're sure some kids will think the ability to paint teeth purple and put tattoos on them is fun, that hardly fits the definition of crazy. Even as a free app, this is a waste of your and your child's time and could easily lead to downloading another app you don't want -- or worse, to paying for elements you don't care about.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
