Some say the dental office is a scary place... like the jungles of the Amazon.

We think the jungle and the dental office can be full of surprises and a lot of fun!!

On this Dental Safari, we'll show you the sights and sounds of the dental office.

Anxiety at the Dental Office!

Anxiety at the dental office...

Many people, including young kids, may find the dental office an anxiety provoking place. A technique to help kids, particularly kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder, is to discuss a social story prior to going to the dental office.

The Hands in Autism Resource centre has a great tool to help kids out. It is like a visual story.

The dental visuals icons may also be helpful from Living Well with Autism.
