Hypnosis in the Dental Practice

A lot of patients (>40%) are nervous or suffer from fear of dentists or anxiety. The manner of communication can reduce or increase this anxiety. For that reason, the right communication and environment can be determining for the patient's experience of the visit. You can help the patient stay calm in the dentist's chair through mild hypnosis or hypnotherapy. It only takes 2-3 minutes to make the patient relaxe, so no extra chair time is spent with the use of mild hypnosis. The hypnotic tools will thus help you reduce the number of cancellations, empty chairs, and use of unnecessary resources. On the workshop you will practice mild hypnosis on each other and learn how to use hypnosis as a supplement for treatment of patients.

On the workshop, you will learn:

  • Basic hypnosis theory.
  • How hypnosis can have a positive effect on the treatment process.
  • How to create the right settings for the patient.
  • How to have the right linguistic qualifications.
  • How to execute mild hypnosis.
  • How to treat anxiety and pain by hypnosis.

Recommendations from other clinics

Chris Grew was very good at making us understand how hypnosis and self hypnosis work. We did several practical exercises that were very valuable. The entire staff at the clinic was inspired and we are now developing a calm environment at the clinic at a whole new level. To me, hypnosis is a very valuable tool to work with to help dental patients get over their fear. I can really recommend a day with Chris for the whole team at the clinic.

Practical Information

Everything takes place at your own clinic

The different workshops and services are held at your own clinic in order for exercises and situations to take place in usual and comfortable settings and hence become as relevant and true as possible. The entire staff is involved in the different workshops and services in order for everyone to get an idea of the concepts and principles. This creates a better implementation of the new initiatives and change of habits in the flow of work at the clinic. To obtain the best learning there will be alternated between classes, exercises. cases. dialogue, and reflection. Every team member actively participates during the process for you to gain a high level of skills and be ready to apply your new knowledge directly in your practice.
