Precious Smiles: A Child's First Visit to the Dentist

Precious Smiles: A Child's First Visit to the Dentist

"Highly Recommended. A nice little program that can definitely help young children overcome their possible fears of the dentist." -National Media Review
Most adults remember the apprehension they experienced as a child in anticipation of their first visit to the dentist. Many lament over how to prepare a child for this experience and often resort to bribery (candy) or trickery ("Let's go visit the nice man in the white jacket who has lots of fun toys you can play with!"), which isn't the way to handle the situation. This program gives adults an effective alternative in showing a child exactly what a visit with the dentist will be like. Purposely short, to assure the attention of a child, the program was produced in a real dental office. Here we meet the dentist, Dr. Stewart, and learn about his tools and techniques. The child in the program, Brad, along with his talking-dog companion, Rex, sees how the dentist prepares for and conducts a dental exam, step by step, in a supportive, non-threatening manner, which will help calm any anticipated anxiety on the part of the child - or the adult for that matter. Produced by Jenesus Instructional Media. 04/09DE P 10 min.
