Who Loves the Dentist Now?
To some kids, the boogie man isn't much less scary than the dentist. Although recent developments in dentistry have made dental work nearly painless, kids still don't appreciate being put in a chair and having a masked person probe their mouths. Their parents still don't appreciate the experience either, and their children pick up on that attitude.
Parents can help their children get over their fears and even learn to appreciate dentists by buying them a set of kids dental scrubs. Children love to dress up and pretend to be adults. What better way is there to feed their imaginations while helping them conquer their fears than letting them pretend to be dentists? This role-playing will put the little ones in control while helping them to understand that dentists are the good guys who just want to keep them healthy.
Of course, you don't really want children to practice dentistry on the cat or on younger siblings, but letting them monitor the family's tooth brushing and flossing will make them feel important and reinforce good oral health habits. Imagine them in their kids dental scrubs each night while they willing brush and floss. Sure, they will probably boss mom and dad around, but, if adults are honest, their dental habits could use a little monitoring, including whether they floss and how often they replace their toothbrushes.
Each set of scrubs is made from a comfortable and durable blend of cotton and polyester, and each child's name can be embroidered on the front pocket, making them feel like true professionals. These costumes are cute, practical, and much better for children than dressing up as a violent cartoon hero or some talking dog. Playacting will get them to willingly leave the television and apply themselves to healthy, imaginative play, and accomplishing that is every parent's dream.
Parents can help their kids have fun while instilling in them an appreciation of dentists and good oral health habits. Giving children positive role models is one of parents' toughest jobs. A simple, inexpensive costume can help in this task and give children hours of constructive play and enjoyment. Good parents take their kids to the dentist regularly, and smart parents buy them dental scrubs.
