Visiting the Dentist: Everyday Learning


Content Source:

Type: Audio/Video


This free video resource from PBS LearningMedia teaches students the importance of visiting the dentist. Like any new experience, going to the dentist can be scary for young children. In this video, two brothers take us on a trip to the dentist that explains what is happening at every step. The older brother introduces the people who work in the office, describes their jobs, and explains how each instrument is used.

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
