Testemonials & Endorsements

Read What Dentists Are Saying About The Mindful Dentistry Training

" This course helped me to be aware and react in a relaxed way. It’s a game change way to be. Thank you!"

Dr. Vasco Venceslau, Dentist

"This course was very enriching, not only for my profession, but also in my personal life. The course is very well structured and it is designed so that the contents are consolidated through several practical exercises. I really enjoyed the sessions I did with Manuela, individually and in groups. The contents were provided in a clear and explicit manner, in an organized manner. I would like to highlight Manuela's availability and empathy for the participants, which we have prepared in all stages of the course. I definitely recommend this course to dentists and dental students."

Dr. Rita Costa, Dentist

"With this course, I had the opportunity to get to know my mind even more, my reactions, my weaknesses and my strengths . Above all, I understood that Iam human, like all others, and as such, I am not immune to criticism, failure, disappointment. Daily consultations became something less traumatic for me, because the assumption of my human element, leaves me with much less pressure than the one I felt. The tranquility and efficiency with which Manuela gives the sessions, put us on a place where we feel much better than when we started. I had never meditated. I didn't believe it. I didn't think I was capable. I meditated. I loved it."

Dr. Nuno Puna, Dentist

"The MBSR course for dentists changed my life. I was in a phase where I felt a lot of stress in my day-to-day work and carried the problems home to the closest people. I started to value my work again, I realized that not all problems are really problems and I managed, through meditation and the exercises proposed, to deal with them in the best way and enjoy life by being present."

Dr. Inês Couceiro - Dentist

"What I have learned is that the way you start your day, your morning routines for example have a lot of influence on your work. Since I started including a short meditation practice everyday my stress levels have been dropping down. Breathing exercises help also a lot. I even started doing that with the more anxious kids, and it works!"

Dra. Manuela Castro, Pediatric Dentist

"I believe that Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction training is one of the best options for Dentists looking for a safe, reputable, and deep exploration into mindfulness and all it’s benefits in the dental practice."

Dr. Maria Schneider, Dentist

"I loved the course! For me it was extremely important, because I was experiencing a high level of stress that already affected my physical well-being. I learned techniques that have helped me to improve not only my day-to-day work, but also afterwards it is positively reflected in my whole life beyond work! As for Manuela, I really liked the way he transmitted the entire course to us, his caring and calm availability that he transmitted to us, not only during the course, but also beyond the course days whenever we needed it! We see that she is a person who likes what he teaches, but also puts into practice what he conveys, which inspires confidence! Thanks Manuela for everything! :)"

Dr. Ana Santana - Dentist

" Without any doubt rewarding, magical, surprising, encouraging! Grateful for the experience, for the spirit, for the peace!  Grateful for the "tools" I acquired in the course, which will be an asset in the near and distant future, for life!  Thank you to Manuela, a beautiful human being who knew how to find her way, and who knows how to transmit all the "juice" of the mindfullness that she acquired in every corner of the world!  I could not be happier for allowing myself to have this time for me and to grow as a professional and as a person!"

Dra. A. Matos - Orthodontist

"Manuela skilfully integrates mindfulness practice into dentistry leading to happier dentists, business growth, and enhanced patient experience. This is made possible through her mindfulness training, years of experience as a dentist, and passion for both. As well as being highly technically competent, Manuela has a gentle and kind approach to her work and clients. This left me feeling positive and blessed after every coaching session with her. I would highly recommend Manuela to anybody needing to learn mindfulness and meditation in the right way. And in particular to dentists who wish to transform their practice and mindset through mindfulness."

Darren Cockburn - Mindfulness Teacher

"I felt the course connected me more to the world and to myself, and in a certain way, I started on a different route than the one I was on. This route will hardly take me on catastrophic paths. Mindfulness was a game changer in my dentistry practice"
