I'm utterly amazed on how easy it was, and how good she was.

My wife bought this book for our 3.5 year old daughter, and has been reading it to her as a bed time story book for the past few weeks.

I bought this book to read to my daughter as a way to prepare her for going to the dentist for the first time.

My son hasn't visited a dentist yet, and he was quite afraid of the prospect. Thanks to Show Me Your Smile!: A Visit to the Dentist, he's not nearly as anxious.

This book follows Dora and her Mom as she goes to the dentist to get her teeth cleaned. The beginning of the story shows Dora in a waiting room playing among other children as they wait for the dental assistant to call their name.

Once inside the dentist's room, Dora points out the chair and the light--explaining the purpose they serve. Dora then explains the process of taking an X-ray...and how the assistant will take a picture of her teeth to make sure they're healthy. She even describes how the assistant covers her with a heavy apron.

Once the X-ray is taken, Dora points out some pictures on the wall...and on the next page are black-and-white X-rays corresponding to the pictures (so children can match the X-ray with the character). The dentist comes in the room, and Dora explains the different instruments on the tray (such as the mirror, floss, dental pick, and so on.). Dora explains how the dentist cleaned her teeth and relates the hygienic advice given ("brush after breakfast and again before bedtime").

The dentist finds a cavity on the X-ray, and shows Dora the hole in the tooth (my son balks at this part). Dora explains that there's a "tool" that gets her tooth ready for the filling...and that it makes a "whirring" sound. (The "tool" is, of course, a drill. And not wanting to scare the child, they don't explain that they may have to get a shot to numb it...and that drilling sometimes causes discomfort.)

Dora receives a new toothbrush and a sticker--and even Swiper the fox makes an appearance (his appointment is after Dora's).

My daughter is so excited about going to the dentist now. The book is very informative, so she will know what to expect when we get there. Great book for toddler's to learn about going to the dentist. Love this book.

My daughter loves Dora and she remembered everything in the book when we went for her first dental visit. I honestly think this book calmed her nerves. A must have.

It really helped my niece when she was ready to go to the dentist. She said if Dora could do it then she could do it to.

A nice story about Dora's trip to the dentist. It is easy to read and easy to understand. The story lends itself easily to different discussions about teeth, keeping them clean and eating healthily. Would recommend this book to Dora lovers.

after having much success with the Dora Doctor book, i decided to order the dentist book to introduce my 2 yr old to the dentist and what happens there. we now read this quite often and my daughter asks when she gets to go to the dentist...let's hope that mentality lasts for a while until we actually make the trip =)

the story is easy to follow. not too wordy and not too brief. just right for her age right now.

As a family practice dentist who sees A LOT of children, I highly recommend this book. I've purchased any "first trip to the dentist" book I can get my hands on over the years, and I found this to be my favorite.

It's a must for little ones before their first visit. Dora is familiar to most little boys and girls, and this book covers everything it needs to. Even talks about getting a filling.

If you're looking for a way to prepare your toddler for their first dental visit, you should get this book.
