What our experts think
Our testers were excited to start playing with the kit materials as soon as they saw the packing. It was a pleasure to watch them fuse real-world experience with their pretend and dramatic play under the theme of dentistry. They enjoyed taking on the roles of dentist, hygienist, parent, and patient while playing with this set.
The learning materials included and the toy’s realistic approximations to medical tools and oral anatomy encouraged and fostered advanced acting and storytelling. Further, it supports increasing their familiarity with the process of being examined by a dentist, oral hygiene procedures, and orthodontics. This can increase their comfort and cooperation levels when they attend their annual visits to the dentist.
Our testers repeatedly played with this set, and it was clear that it supports an interest in medical careers, learning about their body, specifically their mouth and teeth, and how oral hygiene tools work. Furthermore, it helps them explore corrective measures used for cavities and teeth-straightening. Through repeated play with the Super Smile Dentist Play Set, the children can advance their hand skills, language, socio-emotional skills, and age-appropriate oral hygiene and treatment knowledge. For example, children pretend to be dentists and hygienists, they learn new vocabulary, and pair the objects’ names with their form and function. Further, because being examined has a certain level of discomfort for most people, increasing familiarity with the process and acting out how it can be managed, can support adaptive socio-emotional responses when required to be evaluated by a dentist and to accept dental procedures and treatment methods.
