Hypnosis in practice – not just for irrational fears

The March 2011 issue of Preventive Dentistry is out soon – and here’s a rundown of the key oral health news features, clinical studies and latest dental innovations for all dental professionals.

We put the finalists of Preventive Practice of the Year 2010 competition in the spotlight – the team at Confident Dental Care in Stroud, Gloucestershire – who have a preventive ethos second to none. The practice has researched and created its own Confident Steps to Health, a programme that’s evidence-based and patient friendly – and may be going places, too!

There are two hours worth of CPD articles – Shaun Howe talks perio, probes and probity in a CPD article sponsored by Philips and, in a Johnson & Johnson-sponsored CPD article, there’s a look at how changing practice can improve plaque control.

There’s another in the series of handy cut-out-and-keep How to… guides with a checklist to staying ethical and new columnist, Bal Chana, president of the British Association of Dental Therapists, offers her view on the GDC’s Scope of Practice.

The British Society of Dental Hygiene & Therapy’s president, Sally Simpson, joins regular columnists Pam Swain and Jan Baxendale and guest columnist dentist, Peter Galgut.

James Goolnik talks social networking, Ann Gilbert considers patient-specific risk assessment and we look at a toothpaste revolution while there’s a look at an amazing solution to relieve the pressures of accurate perio charting.


Plus, the rise and rise of children’s eating disorders and what the dental team can do to help, and two clinical hypnotherapists consider how best to use hypnosis in the practice.
