Jonah’s BabyTeeth Visit
A Pictorial Guide For Your Child's First Dental Visit by Payman Pirnazar, D.D.S., M.S.
This iBook is an interactive pictorial guide, composed of photographs, videos and textual information, designed as an educational tool to help familiarize young children with various aspects of a typical initial dental visit. Dr. Pirnazar originally created this book in 2006 to help make his patients’ initial visits to his Los Angeles based private practice, BabyTeeth Children's Dentistry, be a positive and more enjoyable experience for them. Some of the material discussed in this book, however, may also serve to familiarize young patients to a dental visit at other dental offices.
The photos and text have been specifically chosen for ages 5 and younger. It is recommended that parents read this book with their children a few times, several days prior to and particularly on the day of their appointment. Discuss the material with your children and help them create a positive mental image about their dental visits and towards dental care.
Helping kids love going to the dentist...
I hated going to the dentist when I was a kid. My own children, however, look forward to it, and this book helps explain why. Dentists like Dr. Pirnazar replace fear with curiosity and humor. He explains the tools and procedures, helping kids participate in their own dental health. This book can help ease a child into their first visit and help reinforce lessons learned.
Read this for the first time with my 5 year old. She has already been to the dentist and was able to relate to what Jonah experienced. For a free book this was great with great information and some Cool X-rays! Thank you!
