K-Gr 3 Like DeSantis and Agre's A Doctor's Tools (Dodd, 1985), this is another winner. Black-and-white photos show dental instruments being used on a variety of small multi-racial patients, none of whom appear pained or apprehensive. Each instrument is also shown alone in a close-up. The photographs complement the text beautifully: they are clear and nicely composed. The accompanying text, with important words and the names of the instruments in boldface, explains how each item is used, as well as the sounds and the sensations of the procedure. There is a strong emphasis on proper dental hygiene. Organization is excellent: the information is divided into three categoriesthe checkup, preventitive care, and repairing a tooth. A table of contents is included, listing each instrument in the appropriate division. An excellent tool for allaying fears as well as explaining what happens at the dentist, this should be a part of every collection. It covers current dental procedures more thoroughly than any other book available, and in a manner both understandable and appealing. For the very youngest, Jill Krementz' Taryn Goes to the Dentist (Crown, 1986) may be less intimidating. Lucy Young Clem, Evansville Vanderburgh County Public Library, Ind.
