How this Book is Organized
Examines the historic evolution of dentistry, the development of hypnosis as a surgical pain block as compared to chemical anesthetics.
A Manual for Dentists and Hypnotists
Beryl Comar shares with you how HYPNODONTICS: A Manual for Dentists and Hypnotherapists came to be born.
How it Began
I began looking for the published material and found there was little information published for dentists and, in contacting other consulting hypnotists, found that most had dealt with few dental cases.
This seemed strange as Dave Elman had trained dentists in the 1960s, and his book “Hypnotherapy” had been studied and used by me for over twelve years. It was my “hypnosis bible” and I had used his techniques for countless dental clients. I had trained with Gerald Kein, who himself was trained by Dave Elman, and widely recognized as one of the leading instructors of clinical hypnosis.
It was only natural that I would turn to him for guidance and I am thankful for his generous advice in reviewing the first drafts and releasing material for inclusion.
The objective of this book
Is to show you how easily Hypnodontics can change dental practice.
It will renew approaches to helping people with easily resolved anxieties and habits, and it will invigorate your interest in this fascinating mind science … and it all starts with most basic of uplifting human emotions … the smile – both yours and those of your “fixed” clients and patients!
Whether dentist, consulting hypnotist or patient – We wish you the very best in your new direction!
