Dr. Paddy Rudden, General Medical Practitioner
“The healthcare systems of all first world countries have much in common. They are all in crisis. They use a model that is based on medical hierarchy and multi-layered administration. There is no sign of a solution. If anything, we can expect worse. All this has been predicted for the past twenty years or more. Compelling reasons were given and possible solutions were offered. It hardly mattered. Nobody listened. Now we profess that we are surprised, even puzzled, at the demise of the great dreams – that science would conquer illness and that high quality health-care would be easily accessible by everyone.
“I highly recommend this book/manual, not just to dental patients, but anyone interested in general health and lifstyle changes. The author applies grounded cognative behavioural strategies to issues fundamental to good dental care. While doing so he also happens to introduce the reader most lucidly – and in the clearest layman’s terms I certainly have ever seen – to the world of cognitions, emotions and behavioural change. So digestible is this introduction (no pun intended!) that it could well serve as a stand alone book to the use of this dominant paradigm in the contemporary global revelolution of taking personal responsibility for health care change.”
“An intelligently written, balanced and simple approach to holistic dentistry connecting the mind body state to the dental state, enlightening parents and health professionals alike.”
