Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist by Marla Roth-Fisch
Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist, like Sensitive Sam, addresses the challenges that children with sensory issues face. While the story is directed at children, explaining to them what will happen at the dentist office during both a regular exam and having a cavity filled, it provides a lot of tips for parents from the author and recognized experts in Sensory Processing Disorder, as well as some parents (including me – so exciting!).
All of this information makes it a great book for children, parents, dentists and orthodontists, and anyone else who wants to understand what concerns and struggles a child with Sensory Processing Disorder may have when visiting the dentist.
If you’re looking for a book that will give your child (sensory issues or not) a step-by-step understanding of what is involved in a trip to the dentist in a way that is kid-friendly and not intimidating or scary, you’ll want to get a copy of Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist to keep handy! I received this book just before my daughter had a dentist appointment, and she enjoyed the story and pictures that helped to explain each step. She went to that appointment with very little anxiety about the process, and I recommended the book to our dentist.
