What to Expect When You Go to the Dentist (What to Expect Kids)


Editorial Reviews

From Booklist
Ages 6-8. The newest title in the What to Expect Kids series helps children and parents get through an occasionally scary experience. Angus the Answer Dog makes another appearance, suggesting a game or activity related to the visit (make a picture to give to the dentist), and answering one question per page. Questions cover everything, from "Why do I have to go to the dentist?" to "What's an X ray?" The text isn't meant for young children as it's quite detailed, but the cartoonlike artwork and the good advice it gives will make this an appealing book for browsing as well as a resource for parents wanting a sensitive way to ease their child into the dentist's chair. A note to parents precedes the text. Kathy Broderick

Book Description
Growing Up Just Got Easier...

With the help of Angus, the lovable Answer Dog, best-selling author Heidi Murkoff extends a hand to children and parents as they tackle life's first experiences together.

When you were growing up, chances are visiting the dentist wasn't your favorite thing to do. Luckily for your child there have been many changes around the dentist's office since your first visit -- changes that have made "opening up wide" a lot less scary and a lot more fun. We're here to explain who dentists are, what they do, why they use all those funny tools, and why regular visits to them can mean a healthier smile, so that your child can sit back, relax, and enjoy the checkup.

Have fun at the dentist!
Heidi and Angus
