Distraction is one of the most commonly used techniques for control of pain associated with pediat-ric dental practice. Audiovisual iatrosedation with the virtual private theatre system distraction method is a new con-cept in behavioral pediatric dentistry and a boon to both patient and the clinician. In this case series frankl's behavior rating scale is used for evaluating the patients. This case report explored the use of virtual private theatre system in behavior management in pediatric dentistry.
