oh, joy.  this was more fun than i expected.

we set up a pretend dentist office in the classroom.  it didn’t take the place of the family corner where dramatic play usually starts.  it was across the room so there was quite a bit of traveling back and forth (as well as wood deliveries from the block corner).

there was a waiting area, a reception desk and the one patient seat.

it posed a slight risk to have the clip on lamp, but there were no injuries and the effect was fabulous.

other supplies included coffee stirrers (as tooth counters), disposable changing pads for bibs and mats, blocks that were used as xray machines, and real xrays!

we had mirrors for friends to hold which proved helpful for doctor and patient:

some medicine showed up mid week.  there were a lot of “tickets” written.

  1. Wow. I love it. I’ve never set up a dentist before, but we are on a big run of hospital and doctor play at the moment so that would be a wonderful progression. You have given me lots of ideas.
