About Me

Philip Christie
B.Dent.Sc., M.Dent.Sc (Perio), M.A. (CBT)

Welcome to Dental Health Synergy.

My name is Philip Christie. I am a practicing dentist since 1980 (36 years). Apart from my primary dental degree, I hold a Master’s Degree in Periodontology (Gums).

I also hold a Master’s degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), a particular psychotherapeutic approach to Human Behavioural Science. I am a trained Mindfulness teacher (Harvard Medical School) I have also studied Hypnosis and Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP). 

My approach to Dental Science is different. I call it the Whole Person approach or Dental Health Synergy because it is clear to me that health requires wholeness and wholeness needs to include all parts within it. In my career, dentistry was always too much about teeth and not enough about the person in whose mouth the teeth are situated. My journey brought me through all the disciplines that I have mentioned above and finally to here where I can hopefully help you to take back your power and heal yourself, body/mind and spirit.
