"A visit to the dentist has never been so painless. Ziefert describes the experience in an interesting and comprehensive alphabetical format. Pleasing collages combined with colorful illustrations and diagrams provide a realistic picture of what goes on in a dental office. School nurses and dental hygienists would be able to teach a unit on dental health using the book, and it would be a worthwhile purchase for dental offices serving young children. A must purchase for libraries."
--School Library Journal
"[offers] plenty of knowledge as well as comfort."

Q is for Questions:
Patient: "Will it hurt?"
Dentist: "It doesn't have to hurt. If what I'm going to do might hurt, I will inject some medicine so you won't feel it."
This was a surprisingly well done book with a considerable amount of information that a child can easily understand and absorb with additional information that will interest the parent, caretaker or teacher. In this A to Z book about healthy teeth there are simple explanations about everything from the use of floss to what plaque and saliva are. One of the more interesting is an illustration detailing the number and names of all the teeth. The text was reviewed by a DDS for accuracy. This would be a good introduction to acquaint the young child with dentists and prevent not only cavities, but fear of dentistry itself.
But it has cool art!
