Publisher's Summary

Fear is one of the basic, negative but necessary feelings all of us experience from time to time. We feel it for a reason, usually to protect us, if you use this feeling to ensure you find a good dentist whom you like, well this is a good thing, but if your fear stops you from receiving necessary treatment then its time to redress the balance. There is of course a difference between harmless fears which have no or little impact on our day to day lives and strong fears or phobias. Few people actually enjoy going to the dentist but its worth noting that there have been massive improvements in dental procedures in recent years with the introduction of air-abrasion tools as an alternative to drills and sedation dentistry has become very accurate in the way areas are treated that may cause pain during a dental procedure. This recording is designed to help you to begin to reprogramme your mind to react in an appropriate way when you visit the dentist. It's unlikely you'll learn to love dental procedures as a result of using this recording! The aim is for you to not be bothered, to feel neutral, to learn how to relax, breathe naturally and easily and allow your mind to wander onto other things whilst you allow the dentist to get on with their job as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

Audible Editor Reviews

Nobody looks forward to going to the dentist! Darren Marks is quick to point out that his goal is not to make listeners suddenly start clamoring for root canals, but rather to be able to learn how to relax while reclining in the dentist's chair. Marks stresses the importance of normal breathing and keeping a neutral mind in order to make the dental experience more efficient and less tense. With a calming tone and a gently murmuring soundtrack of ambient noise, Marks utilizes dual delivery hypnotherapy to repurpose negative connotations of the dentist, guaranteeing a more carefree experience.

Really helpful

I was sceptical, but I thought it would be interesting to see if there were any benefits at all. Truly, I've found this recording to be exceptionally helpful. It promotes calmness and whilst there's no magic 'Bing' moment, ultimately the cumulative effect of listening repeatedly prior to a visit to the dreaded dentist has made the experience noticeably easier to approach. I'd like to thank all those involved.
