Development outcomeC

Dr Barry Oulton, B.Ch.D DPDS MNLP

Dr Barry Oulton has owned Haslemere Dental Centre in Surrey for nearly 20 years, turning it into an award‐winning practice with a reputation for outstanding customer service.

In 2017, he founded The Confident Dentist, a communications training company aimed specifically at the dental sector. Ten years ago, Barry was inspired by a training programme he attended that demonstrated the combined power of human emotions, psychology and physiology, and culminated in him walking on hot coals. Barry saw the potential to use what he learned to improve the service he provides as a dentist. Since then, he has continued to expand his skillset and experience in a variety of disciplines and is now a qualified coach and experienced trainer, has become certified in hypnotherapy and is a master practitioner in neuro‐linguistic programming (NLP).

The Confident Dentist was created to help dental professionals learn effective communication skills, selling with integrity and the art of ethical influence and persuasion so they can have more impact and make a bigger difference, both professionally and personally.
