Fear of the dentist and particularly of having a cavity filled is quite common among many people, especially young children. The very idea of a cavity filling may cause children to think of all the scary 'what-if' scenarios that could occur in such a situation. Of course this only serves to increase their fear exponentially. In Chanie Goes to the Dentist, written by the author of the popular Moshe Goes to Yeshiva, the 'dentist fears' that children like Chanie may have are quickly, calmly, and effectively laid to rest as the exact procedure of what occurs at Chanie's cavity-filling appointment is recounted and explored in a straightforward, child-friendly, and yes, fun way. Your child will love the book's rhymes and endearing illustrations, and before long will shed his or her 'dentist fears' along with Chanie, too!
