It’s not uncommon for adults to be nervous about going to the dentist - and it’s even more common for kids to be nervous. If your child has an upcoming appointment, Charlotte Pediatric Dentistry recommends reading these books to your child to make them feel more comfortable.

“Just Going to the Dentist” by Mercer Mayer

Part of the Little Critter series, this book tells the story of Little Critter going to the dentist, getting x-rays, and even having to get a cavity filled. This book covers a lot of what could happen at your child’s visit to the pediatric dentist.

“The Magic School Bus and the Missing Tooth” by Jeanette Lane

Ms. Frizzle takes her students on an educational, scientific adventure to discover what teeth are and what they do. This book allows children to understand the important of their teeth.

“Sugarbug Doug: All About Cavities, Plaque and Teeth” by Dr. Ben Magleby

Written by a dentist, Sugarbug Doug dives into the causes and consequences of cavities. This teaches children why it’s crucial to take care of their teeth, and what will happen if they don’t.

“Curious George Visits the Dentist” By Margret and H.A. Rey

After the ever-mischevious George bites into a wax apple and causes one of his teeth to become loose, he’s taken to the dentist and learns that it doesn’t have to be scary. This short story shows kids that the dentist can be fun!

“The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist” by Stan and Jan Berenstain

In addition to Brother and Sister Bear having loose teeth pulled and getting a dental exam, this book also explains the different types of instruments and tools that the dentist use.

The entire staff was so warm and friendly. It was my little guy's first dentist appointment and they were so patient with him.
