With the gift-giving season quickly approaching, the team at Peace Street Dental in Raleigh, North Carolina, has put together a few of our favorite toys and books to teach children about taking care of their teeth and to make their regular trips to the dentist fun.
Let your kid practice being the dentist with this sensory dough kit and kid-sized tools. Each kit comes with a mouth that opens wide for tooth-brushing practice or trying out dental tools. Whether your child loves a visit to the dentist or feels a tiny bit anxious, this kit can be a great gift for helping the dentist’s office feel like a more comfortable place.
Tooth Fairy Pillows
We are a small business that loves supporting other small businesses. Etsy is full of clever and beautiful tooth fairy pillows. You can find everything from superheroes to fairies in tulle skirts, something just right for every kid.

Biodegradable Dental Flossers
Kids love a fun gadget, and these Grin dental flossers check all the boxes. The perfect stocking stuffer, they are sized for little mouths, brightly colored, and have a 100% biodegradable handle. Why not add a few of these to your list!
Another addition to the stocking, the Triple-Angle Fridababy ToothHugger is Dr. Griffith’s top pick for brushing tiny teeth. The triple-angle brush cleans all sides of the tooth at once so you can clean more teeth before your tot wiggles away. We also love the soft bristles and easy-to-hold handles to help toddlers learn good brushing techniques. Helps make brushing time at home more effective and fun!
Books about Dentist Visits
What gift list would be complete with a few timeless books? There are many great books about going to the dentist; our favorites include the classic The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist, Curious George Visits the Dentist, and Doctor De Soto (Spanish version). Maybe one of these books would be just right for the young readers on your holiday list.
