Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2008 - Education - 32 pages
Nicole visits the dentist. Having heard many scary stories about dental appointments, she is frightened just by the thought of it. Dr. Milli the dentist tries to calm Nicole down and break the tension by showing and explaining to her step by step, the procedures she will carry in her mouth. Only after Nicole accepts to have it done, Dr. Milli continues to treat her. This book tries to introduce most of the dental techniques in a special conceptual way so that every child can comprehend what he or she could expect in time for a dentist appointment. The dental equipments and procedures are introduced in this book in a straight-forward, young language together with illustrations from the dental office. The "Tell Show and Do" technique which Dr. Harel-Raviv adopted in her private practice while treating children is demonstrated as well. Everyone should have this children's book on their shelf including the kids themselves, their parents, educators and health care providers. Dr. Harel-Raviv recommends the child first visit at the dentist's office at two and a half years of age, once all the primary teeth erupted. For optimal oral health, twice a year should be the correct number of dental visits. Upon the dental visits this book should be read and repeated in order to lower the children anxiety and dental phobia.
