Grown-up Tip: This month focus on the Health Center as your purposeful play space. In the dentist office, help your child clean and count the teeth on the dolls. Avoid making drilling noises or lining up other “instruments.” The key is to get your child familiar with the routine and comfortable for a dental visit.
