Start your little dentist off with the right wardrobe! Available in kids’ sizes 2-10, the Jr. Lab Coat is a fabulous must-have for aspiring dental professionals. A great additional gift-giving idea is to have the child’s name monogrammed on the pocket or lapel of the coat.

Nothing can fuel a child’s fascination with teeth, like exploring the largest of the large!
