For the Practitioner

As a Dental Professional, there are many things that you can do to support the patient and set up the stage for a better experience.

It involves a combination of:


Understanding Trauma

Trauma is the physiological response to any event or series of events that we perceive as life threatening and that overwhelm us.


Understanding yourself as dental professional

The better self-regulated you are yourself at work; the better you’ll be at supporting the patient throughout the appointment.


Creating the right environment

The patient experience starts with their first contact with the dental clinic.


Having tools available to help to reduce anxiety

Implementing various techniques can significantly contribute to creating a more relaxed and positive experience for patients during dental procedures. Explore the tools that we’ve offered on this website
