Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is done safely in the office with the help of Dr. Wender using verbal repetition and mental images. When you’re under hypnosis, you are aware of everything going on but you feel calm and relaxed.
Dr. Wender has used hypnosis very successfully since the 1980’s. Hypnosis is used to take the fear out of your dental visit, by keeping you anxiety free. With hypnosis you are able to remain relaxed. It will even help the patient with the most severe gag reflex. This will help you get through your appointment effortlessly and with only a vague memory of your visit with us.
"Hello my name is Jeremiah, For 20+ years I was unable to go to a dentist because of a real fear. The Fear I had prevented me from having good dental hygiene and doing basic health care. I struggled with even talking about going to the dentist and although I didn't know at the time my fear was putting my health at risk. One day about a year ago the pain from an infection on my wisdom teeth was so bad I finally agreed to go to the dentist. When I walked into Dr. Wender office I broke down but luckily the office staff of Celeste and Ashley saw something was wrong and went and got Dr Wender who took me to his office and they comforted me. He explained he thought he could help me by using Hypnotism. Of course I was very skeptical. The initial visit to do the hypnotism was relaxing and calming. I had no idea when it ended how much it would help me. I was scheduled for my first cleaning and exam in 20+ years and when I arrived I was taken to the chair of my Hygienist Christine who brought in Dr Wender to start my process of using hypnotism. Christine worked on my teeth for every bit of 2 hours and the entire time was pleasant and pain free. I have since been in for dental work 5-6 times and no longer are their tears and fear. Instead it is replaced by happiness and smiles. I love going to the Dentist now and a year ago this would not have been possible. None of this would be possible if not for the wonderful care of the entire staff at Dr. Wender Office and most importantly hypnotism that he provided me.
Forever Grateful, Jeremiah Sharpe"
