Oral health


Motivational Interviewing is an approach to health that is almost the opposite of the traditional format applied by different health care professionals. In oral health, in particular, in which behavior is so decisive in the successful treatment of the most prevalent diseases, breaking the dominance of prescriptive, judgmental and counselling-based practices is paramount.

relationships we establish with our patients.
