The exhibit includes a pretend dental clinic where kids can dress up like dentists or tooth fairies. They can complete "dental exams," practice brushing and flossing on models and match and inspect teeth of sharks, whales, dinosaurs and other animals. The exhibit also includes books and puzzles about visiting the dentist and about the teeth and mouth.
The museum has also updated its bank area. The Scott Credit Union opened April 1, and features a new ATM, safe and iPad to facilitate pretend banking play.
