Hypnosis, forceps and undergraduates: Clinical communication in Oral Surgery

“Hypnosis, forceps and undergraduates:
Clinical communication in Oral Surgery”

Speaker: Mr Jim Carey
Dentistry presents a particular challenge for clinical communication. Surgical treatments are routinely carried out on patients who are awake or sedated, and undergraduate dental students require some training in Oral Surgery prior to qualifying. Clinical hypnosis, and hypnotic techniques
in clinical communication can greatly assist in the management and care of these patients.

Maintaining a hypnotic focus while teaching requires involving students in a communicative alliance.

Jim Carey is a highly experienced Oral Surgeon and Dental Academic based in Peninsula Dental School at the University of Plymouth where he leads on the Oral Surgery and Professionalism themes. He has worked primarily in education in Oral Surgery for around two decades, teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students in a range of subjects including Oral Surgery, Communication Skills, Dental Anxiety, and Hypnosis. He incorporates teaching hypnotic techniques to undergraduate students in his Oral Surgery clinics.
