Playdoh Dentist Set - Play-doh Dr. Drill and Fill Toy
The idea is to mold white teeth out of Play-Doh, press them into the gums of the patient, and then play dentist.
Parents may remember this silly drill and fill Play-Doh set from their childhood. The idea is to mold white teeth out of Play-Doh, press them into the gums of the patient, and then play dentist. Teeth can be drilled with the plastic pretend drill and then filled with the silver Play-Doh compound, or teeth can be extracted with the dental pliers. In addition to the play factor, children can work out their dentist anxieties by reversing roles--they're the ones holding the equipment and working on the patients. It's also very entertaining, especially when children make the Play-Doh tongue squeeze out of the mouth. Set includes three dental tools and three cans of Play-Doh in colors to represent teeth, silver filling, and a person's tongue.
A dentistry playset can serve as a fun and educational way to introduce children to the world of oral care and the role of dentists. Armed with toy dental instruments, teeth models, and other dental accessories, children can play the role of a dentist, "treating" their toy patients or even their friends and family. This imaginative play can help demystify the experience of going to a dentist, potentially alleviating any anxiety or fear a child might have about dental visits. Moreover, it creates an opportunity for parents to educate their children about the importance of regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene. By taking on the role of a dentist, children not only gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the profession but also become more responsible and proactive about their own dental health.
