By Janet Boyer HALL OF FAME on May 9, 2005
Format: Paperback
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).

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.

this book is great. the Dora creators understand preschoolers. The sentences are short and engaging. It asks the kids questions (can you find the purple toothbrush?) thing are explained well at a preschool level. I think it has helped reduce my 3yo son's nervousness about getting a cavity filled. He loves the book

I bought this book for my 3 year old before taking him to his second dentist visit. His first one he wouldn't open his mouth. The dentist was expecting trouble for his 3 yr old check, but no! My son was so excited about it! We read the Dora book so many times I knew it by heart. It shows a lot of the same tools a real dentist uses and even goes through the cavity process. I was blown away and so was the dentist. If your child likes Dora buy this book!!

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.

I got this for my girls as it is just about time for their first trip to the dentist. It goes through the process of going to the dentist. There are a number of fun things, such as a page where you match up characters with xrays of their mouths. They explain cavities, xrays, & common dentist tools. I am hopeful being familiar with the dentist & the fact that mom will be calm (I am not afraid of the dentist), their first trip to the dentist will go smoothly.

Great book describing all aspects of a trip to the dentist. We bought this and another similar book because our four year old has such a difficult time at the dentist. Our four year old and 20 month old both love this book.
