Biography for Puja Sabherwal, BDS, MDS

Puja Sabherwal

Dr. Puja Sabherwal is a resident of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry at the University of Delhi, India. She graduated Bachelors in Dental Surgery from University of Delhi in 2017.

Since times immemorial, anxiety and pain have posed a challenge to dentists as well as medical physicians. Such anxiety and pain may lead to deferring care and has great impact on the oral and general health.

Her experience with Hypnotherapy began as an effort to find a suitable technique for anxiolysis in the dental setting. Being an avid scholar and someone striving to constantly evolve, Hypnosis became a thorough research interest for her.

She has successfully used Hypnosis in a vast magnitude of her patients many of whom include children to allay anxiety, control pain, change pattern of habits and rehabilitate psycho-somatic medical cases. It is her belief that medico-dental sciences would evolve tremendously if the power of the sub-conscious mind was harnessed to its full potential.

Being the first “Hypnodontist” in India, it is her goal to revolutionise the field of Dentistry in the country by adding Hypnosis to the dentist’s armamentarium. The tremendous potential of hypnosis would make medico-dental care a truly comprehensive and holistic experience for the people integrating the “body-mind” concept.
