Beryl Comar shares with you how HYPNODONTICS: A Manual for Dentists and Hypnotherapists came to be born
“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.” Beryl Comar shares with you a culmination of information as she collaborated with hypnotists globally .

How this Book is Organized (excerpt from the book)
“This book is presented in SIX parts:
The first section for the general reader, examines the historic evolution of dentistry, the development of hypnosis as a surgical pain block as compared to chemical anesthetics, and the place of hypnosis in managed dental care today.
The second section for the consulting hypnotist, details the physiologic, psychological and sociological aspects affecting Hypnodontics, both from a dental practitioner’s and a dental patient’s point of view. We offers suggestions on how to expand into Hypnodontics, how to approach branching into dental anxiety, either exclusively or in supportive conjunction to an existing hypnotherapeutic practice. In “How to Treat the Dentist” examines the stressors dental practitioner face on a daily basis so the Consulting Hypnotist can more empathetically structure a proposal for offering a dentist a sample session.
The third section is for dentist with advice on how s/he can use hypnosis as an everyday tool, for self, staff and patients. It includes recommendations from a dentist who has become a licensed hypnotist and uses hypnosis with her patient as well as those dentists who have referred patients to hypnotists and how they worked together. There is information for those dentists who wish to complete accredited training in hypnosis. Lastly we present the current role of hypnotherapy in the practice of dentistry as a complementary therapy, and our expectations for the future.
Section four is for dentists and hypnotherapists working with children. We describe the growth of teeth from infancy along with some of the concerns of tooth development in growing children. This followed by suggestions for hypnotists and dentists to work with children along with examples and some scripts.
Our fifth section contains case histories from the authors and contributing consulting hypnotists from around the world their contact information can be found in the Appendix.
Our sixth section contains some helpful script samples. Always with the caveat that an excellent consulting hypnotist will have more advanced techniques in his or her toolbox (regression to cause, parts therapy among others).
Section Seven contains case histories from hypnotherapists relevant to dental work. In cases where confidentiality needs to be preserved the names of clients has been hanged and the country not named.
In the Appendix the reader will find references and bibliography, a glossary of useful vocabulary as well as a list of specialists around the world who work with hypnosis for dental clients and train certified hypnosis courses.
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!”

“I’m a fan of Beryl Comar and have the utmost respect for her. This book is so practical and useful. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist I recommend this book as a must read. Incredibly helpful for any dentist too.” – Amazon Customer Review
“Having been a hypnotist for over twenty years, I purchased this book with the idea of reenforcing my knowledge of how hypnosis can help people with fears of the dentist. I came away far more knowledgeable about the topic than I can tell you. This paperback addresses the cause of dental fears, the history of dentistry, how hypnosis can be used to to address pain management, dealing with young children and has scripts for consulting hypnotists.
This paperback is not merely for hypnotists, but for dentists as well. An entire section is devoted to dentists and explains how they can make their patients more comfortable with their work. Beryl discusses being trained by Gerald Kein, one of the leading hypnosis instructors in the world. Mr. Kein was a student of Dave Elman who worked with doctors using hypnosis. This book follows that intellectual lineage.
This book is a must for hypnotist interested in dealing with tooth grinding, dental fears, pain management, braces, nutrition and many other related topics. Dentists will benefit as well. It is incredibly comprehensive.
I cannot recommend HypnoDontics enough.” – Timothy M. Horn
