Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist by Award-winning Author and Illustrator Marla Roth-Fisch is Now Available for Pre-order

A trip to the dentist can be challenging for children with sensory issues, and parents will find reading Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist with the children before the appointment a way to make the dental visit more enjoyable.  The book is perfect for children and adults with sensory issues as a result of sensory processing disorder (SPD), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), or other disorders involving a sensory component.

"Having a good first experience with going to the dentist will help a child with autism tolerate the dentist.  This book will help children on the spectrum better understand visits to the dentist," said Temple Grandin, PhD, author and the most noted highly functioning person with autism in the world today.

Sensitive Sam Visits the Dentist includes practical advice from dentists and orthodontists specializing in children with special needs, such as brushing and flossing tips.  Parents and sensory specialists also share stories of best and worst case scenarios, and tips on finding the right dental office for your family.
