15 Books about Visiting the Dentist
I’ll admit that I wasn’t very good about getting Nick to the dentist. Our dentist didn’t feel it was necessary before at least the age of 3, and Nick has always been very sensitive to loud sounds. I honestly was nervous that he’d not handle the appointment well, so he was well over 4 before I finally got up the nerve to take him.
Once I had finally made the appointment I knew that I had to start getting Nick prepared for his dentist visit. Being the language arts major that I am I have always turned to books to help prep for different life things. I did some research and found 15 great books about visiting the dentist.
I have listed them with Amazon links below so you can learn more about them to see if they’re right for your child. I hope these books help prepare your child as these books about visiting the dentist did for us.
