Dental Hypnosis

Although we make every effort to ensure your trip to Faces and Smiles is as pleasant and calm as possible, some people still find any trip to the dentist stressful!
We now offer Dental Hypnosis from our Lowestoft clinic, helping you to stay calm and relaxed whilst we make sure you come out smiling.

We are offering hypnosis to help with these all symptoms, phobias and aliments. If you’re unsure if your problem is suitable for hypnosis, you are more than welcome to come for a consultation to discuss this.

Free Consultation – 15 minutes to discuss suitability, what hypnosis can do for the patient, and a brief history of the problem.

First Hypnosis session– Half Price offer £50 for the session lasting 30-60 mins. Full history will be completed along with other paperwork, plus first experience of hypnosis and relaxation.

Subsequent sessions– £100 per session approx. 45 minutes. This will be when the therapy takes place. Treatments usually last for 2-4 hypnosis sessions, each lasting between 30-60 minutes. You will be required to complete your own self-hypnosis work to practice between sessions either in the form of a CD, a recording, or a script.

A chaperone will be present in the room for all hypnosis sessions as well as the therapist.

The results of hypnosis are long lasting and once treatment is complete you may only have to come for top-up sessions if you feel you need them.

The sessions are currently available at Lowestoft and with Dr. Sophie Holmes BDS (Hons), MJDF (RCS eng).
