This information picture book for very young children takes all the mystery out of a trip to the dentist. Simple text, full page, boldly-coloured, child-like illustrations explain what is involved in a dental check up, why it is important, what the dentist looks for, and the equipment he uses (e.g. probes, mirrors, x-rays). Additionally, the text also covers the ways in which children can take good care of their teeth (e.g. healthy foods and snacks, brushing, rinsing). A worthwhile picture book that will update your K-Grade1 Health resources that focus on dental care. Health curriculum: Personal Health (K-1); Life Roles and Career Development (K-1); Early Education.
