How do FunDepressors differ from ordinary tongue depressors?

FunDepressors are like ordinary tongue depressors in their composition (wood) and size (Junior). The key difference is the way young patients respond to FunDepressors � with anticipation and amusement instead of stress and fear. And as every doctor knows, a calm and cooperative patient makes for a faster, more manageable examination.

While ordinary tongue depressors are perceived by young patients as a threat, FunDepressors are immediately recognized as appealing and entertaining. And unlike ordinary depressors, FunDepressors give patients a positive memory about their visit, along with something to look forward to for their next one. 

FunDepressors� fanciful designs and vivid colors minimize the unpleasantness young patients associate with oral examinations and medical professionals. They provide an entertaining distraction that allows doctors to conduct exams calmly and orderly and also serve as a means to enhance doctor-patient relationships.
