1. Storybooks – there are lots of books themed around visiting the dentist:

  • Peppa Pig – Dentist Trip
  • Topsy & Tim – Go to the Dentist
  • Usborne First Experiences – Going to the Dentist
  • Sally Hewitt First Experiences – Going to the Dentist
  • Little Princess – I want my tooth
  • DK First steps – Going to the Dentist
  • Tom Barber – Open Wide
  • Charlie & Lola – My wobbly tooth must not ever never fall out

2. Dressing-up activities – if your child is worried about going to the dentist you could create your own dental surgery and waiting room for them to play with. They could even dress up as a dentist.

3. Create a map of the route going to the dentist.
Add in things that you would see on the way.
