Specialist in Periodontics
Dr Philip Christie Practices in Carlow
Dr. Christie has been a practicing dentist for the past 36 years. Along with his primary dental degree, he holds a Masters degree in Periodontology (treatment of periodontal or gum disease). He also holds a Masters degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), a psychotherapeutic approach to Human Behavioural Science. He is a trained Mindfulness teacher (Harvard Medical School) and has studied Hypnosis, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and is trained as a Reiki master.
His main interest is in the full diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of periodontal disease, but his approach to dental science and gum disease is different. He focuses on ‘the whole person approach’ as he believes that dental health is closely connected to a person’s overall health and well being. His journey has brought him through all the disciplines allowing him to take a more rounded approach to his patient’s overall wellbeing.
