Reading books about going to the dentist is a natural way
to introduce the idea and begin to answer
the questions your child may bring up.
Dr. DeSoto and Dr. DeSoto Goes to Africa by William Steig
Dr. Desoto Books are enjoyable for both adults and children. Dr. DeSoto and his wife are mice but provide dental care for all sizes.
My Dentist, My Friend by P.K. Halliman
Step-by-Step explanation of a visit to the dentist.
P.K. Hallinan began writing children's books 35 years ago when his wife asked him to make a book for their two young sons as a Christmas gift. He did, and the feedback he got from friends and neighbors inspired him to write more books. Since then, P.K. has written and illustrated 89 children's books and has sold more than 8,000,000 copies worldwide.
P.K. was born in Los Angeles in 1944 and spent his youth primarily in Bethesda, Maryland and in the San Fernando Valley. Although P.K. never studied art, his disappointment with the work of the artist assigned to illustrate his first book, motivated him to learn to draw. He has been illustrating his own books ever since.
"If I did any one thing right," says P.K., "I decided very early on to write books that help children and parents alike have better and happier lives. That decision has kept many of my books in-print for more than 25 years, because the values I teach are timeless."
P.K. is also an ordained minister and pastors his own small church, Joy Chapel, in Ashland, Oregon. He lives with his wife, Jeanne, in the mountains above Ashland and also at the beach, in Brookings, Oregon.

The Tooth Book: A Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums by Edward Miller
Elmo Visits the Dentist
An introduction to the a dental visit by a toothy Wolf.
We love this book! My 2 year old was so proud because when he went to the dentist he thought it was great that he sat in the chair and got to go through a treasure chest just like Elmo did in the book! The book is well written and a great way to prepare your child for their first visit to the dentist. It really helped to decrease any anxiety about that first trip. I plan to read it a lot more before his next appointment as well to ensure he's not stressed when going back to the dentist. Highly recommended!
