Tell-Show-Do

Tell-Show-Do is a technique of behavior shaping used by pediatric dentists. The technique involves verbal explanations of procedures in phrases appropriate to the development level of the patient (tell); demonstrations for the patient of the visual, auditory, olfactory and tactile aspects of the procedure in a carefully defined, non-threatening setting (show); and then, without deviating from the explanation and demonstration, completion of the procedure (do). The Tell-Show-Do technique is used with communication skills (verbal and nonverbal) and positive reinforcement.
