Today, we would like to announce the release of our new book, ‘Millie meets the Dentist’. The My Health, My Rights Conference presented the perfect occasion to launch it. Every attendee of the conference has recieved a copy of the book and we hope the delegates enjoy reading it. We are very proud of this wonderful book, as it represents what we stand for as the leading Scottish children’s health charity. Children’s Health Scotland plays a big part in enabling children and young people, and those who love and care for them, to learn more about their rights in relation to their health and wellbeing.
Gwen Garner, Vice Chair for Children’s Health Scotland, said during her speech at the My Health, My Rights Conference: “It is my great pleasure to announce the launch of a new book today by Children’s Health Scotland, entitled ‘Millie meets the Dentist’. The star of this book is Millie who struggled to go to the dentist because she is autistic. Her mum got in touch with us, and we were able to offer Millie a dental play session with dressing-up, real equipment, toys, and books. This allowed Millie to learn about the dentist, and her rights, in a playful way. The whole experience made it possible for her to feel respected and involved in decisions about her treatment.
“The book also includes a section for adults and professionals who support children like Millie. It offers information, evidence, and lots of practical advice on how to help anxious children through a rights-based approach and each one of you has a copy of this book in the delegate bag. I would like to thank Millie and her mum for working with us to produce such a wonderful publication that is so firmly focused on ‘my health and my rights’.”

We want to give special thanks to the B Smile Studio in Barrhead for allowing us to visit with Millie and to take lots of photos for her own special book.
