For example, you can tell yourtoddler a story in which:A hero withyour childsname goes onan adventure…to the dentistsoffice.
Once There…Your child canencounter aforest ofchairs(or otherwaiting roomsurroundings)
If the magician or medicine(wo)manusesstrangetools …
Or, odd-smelling potions…… to search for the missing smile.
At the end, the magician findsthe heros beautiful smile
And encourages the hero to hangon to that wonderful smile… by remembering to brush every day and after eating sweets
And, to come back for helpfinding their smile any time.
Parents can re-tell this storyvarious times before the visit..• So that it will be more likely to "stick“.• And, provide that frame of reference your young child’s mind can use …• To make the experience seem less scary or uncomfortable and a bit happier when appointment day rolls around.• And even…gives you some extra quality cuddle time with your child.
