Advances in Dental Hypnosis for Dentists and Psychology Professionals
Ashley Goodman, DDS, AMHD; Gabor Filo, DDS, AMHD
This workshop will review basic, intermediate, and more advanced hypnotic skills including rapid, timesaving techniques as they apply to the providing of effective and comfortable dental care for both the providers, hygienists and registered dental assistants, and patients. The uses of creative visualization, densensitization, restorative appliance acceptance, control of saliva and blood flow, more rapid healing, pain control, etc., will be demonstrated. Specific applications of clinical dental uses for behavior modifications, relaxation, pediatric situations, anxiety and oral habit control, minimizing gagging, enhancing personal communications, and self-hypnosis/stress reduction methods for the dental patient, the dental care provider, and psychologists working with the dental team will be examined.
Patient care will be enhanced through a greater appreciation of therapeutic communication by dental personnel. Psychologists will have an insight into the dental milieu and its requirements. They will then be better able to assist their local dental colleagues and their patients. Dentists will walk away with Monday morning techniques for their phobic and anxious patients.
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to…
Discuss three applications of hypnosis in the treatment of dental problems;
Identify at least 5 uses of hypnotherapy for behavior modification; and
Provide training for psychologists who wish to expand their knowledge and practice with
dental health providers (referral).
