We understand that from time to time, your child may have a little anxiety or fear about coming to visit us and we are here to let you know that we want to help!
We have many books in our waiting room for children that we feel can help them not only learn about what goes on at our office, but can help them relate to our dentists and technicians a little more.
NOTHING TO FEAR
It is a good idea to reassure your child that coming to visit us is not a scary thing, however, they may need a little more confirmation. Sometimes reading about their favorite character going on an adventure to the dentist office can help ease that anxiety. Below, we have provided you with some of our favorite titles, feel free to check them out from the local library, or even take an afternoon field trip to read them in our office waiting room!
THE BERENSTAIN BEARS VISIT THE DENTIST
Everyone knows that Brother and Sister Bear live lives full of adventure and in this story, Sister gets the opportunity to watch Dr. Bearson fill a small cavity for Brother Bear. When it is her turn to have a loose baby tooth removed will she be brave?
DORA GOES TO THE DENTIST
If Dora The Explorer is popular in your home, then this is the book for you! This book will engage your child in looking for items around the dentist office as well as prepare them for what is expected of them. Open wide!
JUST GOING TO THE DENTIST
Mercer Mayer takes us on an adventure with Little Critter as he visits the dentist for the first time. X-rays, the check-up and even getting a filling are all part of this story.
This is just a small sample of the books that we have available, if you’d like more, give us a call, schedule a check-up for your child and ask us about more titles! See you soon!
