Peter's Trip to the Dentist
By Latia Smith, Sameer Kassar (Illustrator)
Join six-year old Peter as he journeys across town with his family to visit the dentist. An elaborate office, embellished in a Zoo-like theme, gives a warm, welcoming feeling to all of its pediatric patients. The office’s dental hygienist, Ms. Stacy, guides Peter step-by-step throughout the entire procedure of his dental cleaning as she introduces all the fancy tools and equipment that she uses during the treatment. Yummy flavors are always an incentive for getting your teeth polished, as the choices are endless. Removing sugar bugs off of the teeth produces a sparkling smile, while radiographs help to ensure there is no tooth decay, which may be underlying. Peter learns about taking x-ray pictures and gets a lesson on home care instructions to maintain a healthy dentition. Goody-bags and treasure prizes are such a treat, making Peter’s trip to the dentist complete. A pleasant time with the hygienist and dentist makes Peter look forward to his next dental visit!
This is a fantastic dentist book. It’s the most detailed and realistic trip to the dentist children’s book I have ever seen. It lays out the entire day and every little thing a child would experience. If you have a child that is a little scared to go to the dentist, I would highly recommend this book to show them exactly what will happen. Everything from the waiting room, to picking out flavored tooth polish, to getting x-rays done, and the best part of all, the goodybag. I could see this book being sold right inside dentist offices to promote better oral health in kids. Just a great educational book and a wonderful story with cute illustrations.
