EP43 Dental Hypnosis – Interview with Sharon Waxkirsh

In this episode, Mike chats with Sharon Waxkirsh – Founder and Director of Academy for Hypnosis.
Academy for Hypnosis, an enhanced school affiliated with the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners and the Dave Elman Hypnotherapy Institute.

Sharon has successfully educated hundreds of dentists, physicians, and surgeons in hypnotherapy. Today, she talks about the benefits of hypnosis for patients and dentists, and also debunks its misconceptions.
In a hypnotherapy session, you are more in control of yourself, far from the misconception of people that hypnosis will let you be controlled.

Sharon explained also that patients are more often to consider hypnosis than dentists. It is because of their fear, anxiety, TMJ problems, bruxism, teeth grinding, clenching, gag reflex, and such things.

The most significant benefit of hypnosis for dentists is you’ll get more referrals, and clients will return and repeat sessions. It’s a moneymaker.

Finally, Sharon shares her number one piece of advice for anyone thinking about buying or starting their own dental practice.

If you have any questions regarding dental membership plans, contact Sharon Waxkirsh at Academy for Hypnosis.

This episode is brought to you by PatientBoost – The Business & Marketing Growth Consultancy for Dental Practices.

Last year, we phoned over 100 dental practices to understand how receptionists handle patient calls, and we were SHOCKED by the results.

Based on what we learnt, we put together the Dental Receptionist Greeting Script to help receptionists make the best first impression and increase the likelihood of turning a complete stranger into a patient.
