Going to the dentist can be very stressful and scary for some children and adults with special needs. What's going to happen? What's that noise? Using a visual schedule that describes the visit with pictures and symbols can help patients understand the procedures and expectations, and allows the patient (and dentist) to have a better experience.
Our Dentist Office Visual Support Kit is designed using picture symbols that illustrate ten activities, in sequence, that typically occur at a dental visit. Some feelings symbols are also included so the patient can express OK, Stop or Need a Break. Each schedule board is 8.5" x 11" and laminated for durability and cleaning.

“Thank you for making the Picture Communication Boards for our office. It has worked wonders for some of our patients! One little boy in particular never sat for a cleaning. But using the Board he did everything.” Cara Donley DMD, Sudbury MA
