Joey Goes to the Dentist
Hi! My name is Joey. I'm 5 years old. In a couple of days, I am going to the dentist.'
Many children find the experience of visiting the dentist an uncomfortable one, and Joey is no exception.
He has Asperger Syndrome, which makes him particularly sensitive to the sensations that he experiences during a visit to the dentist: the feeling of cold instruments in his sensitive mouth, the piercing sound of the drill and the strong taste of mouthwash. He also dislikes the invasion of personal space which a trip to the dentist always involves.
