The growing body of graphic fiction includes some novels that especially address the patient experience of disease or caring for those with an illness. The term “graphic medicine” refers to visual storytelling that explores narratives about the body, health care, healing, and disability. Recently, graphic medicine, an interdisciplinary discipline combining comics and medicine launched COVID-19 comics, an online collection of comics, editorial cartoons, autobiographical cartoons, and social media posts. Children behave better and feel less nervous about seeing the dentist thanks to the dental story. Following an oral health education program that uses cartoon animation for dental health, oral hygiene improves. Activities for comic book media counseling are successful in raising knowledge. Comics help in educating parents about oral health. The review's objective was to investigate the importance of educational comics in dentistry to educate pediatric patients, adults, and parents.
