Wentzel Christoffel Coetzer
Born 1966/06/28
Contact tel. Nr. (021) 531 1735 and 082 9599 322
Practice address.  19 Welwyn avenue
Cape Town

Wentzel attended Heidelberg High School where he matriculated.  It was in the school library where he found a hypnosis book by Dave Ellman.  The subject was both intriguing and mysterious and led to many a laugh at the boarding school where he held small hypnosis shows.  It came to the attention of the headmaster and the book was banished from the library due to the belief system that hypnosis was indeed from the devil.
At university (Tygerberg dental school) a whole section on hypnosis was found and all the books were devoured.  In the search to use hypnosis as a tool in dentistry, it was found that hypnosis was too time consuming to be used successfully as an everyday tool.  Only selected patients with severe phobias were treated under the guiding eye of Professor Breytenbach (Prof Manie).  
Wentzel acquired his dental degree from Stellenbosch University in 1991.  In 1995 the first ever South African Medical and Dental Hypnosis Symposium was held at Sun City and Wentzel attended and achieved a level 1 certification.  
In 2000 he obtained his honours degree in Orthodontics (with distinction) through the University of the Western Cape.
A  Post graduate diploma course in implantology was obtained through the University of Western Cape through Prof. Van Zijl.
Various independent trainers were approached in order to further his knowledge of hypnosis.  
In 2009 a conversational hypnosis course was done through Igor Ledochowski.
In 2010 a Clinical Hypnosis course was done through Igor Ledochowski.
In 2011 Wentzel did a Stage hypnosis course with Nathan Thomas and Reg Blackwood.  Also in 2011 another stage hypnosis course was done with Igor Ledochowski.  Stage hypnosis can play a very important role in the use of hypnosis during dentistry.
In 2012 Wentzel studied no trance hypnosis presented by James Tripp.  James Tripp also presented his no fail hypnosis short course, which was done at the same time.
Since 2011 he is following a mentorship programme in hypnosis through Rita Marr and Vernon Frost.
During 2013 Wentzel developed the Hypnosis for Dentists programme – where he aims to make the induction phase as short as possible and have a no failure protocol – all whilst doing it through normal conversation (in order not to sound "strange").  He then also started lecturing in dental hypnosis – presenting his own training event in Cape town and later a lecture for SADA in Kimberley.
Private practice has helped tremendously with the development of the program, because the theories could be tested and sharpened practically.
2014 Has started with a bang with 5 training courses (Each 2 ½ days long) throughout South Africa.  He has also been invited by the Namibian Dental Association to give a series of lectures focussing on hypnosis in dentistry.
