DENTOSOPHIE: A GLOBAL APPROACH TO THE HUMAN BEING
Lecturer: Claudia Sormani, M.D.
Live-streaming online webinar
26th May, from 6.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m.
This webinar will be held in Italian.
For osteopaths, the collaboration with the dentosophist is exciting and stimulating. The dentistry field increasingly requires collaboration with the osteopath. The training in this area provides the specialist with a high level technical expertise both from an evaluative and therapeutic perspective. Sometimes the risk is to fall into technicalities, reducing the osteopathic contribution to a list of dysfunctions that osteopaths know are often “sacred” adaptations implemented by the patient and not always real pathologies that need treatment or consideration.
Working with a dentosophist reminds us how important the concept of adaptability and health is in osteopathy. How is the patient? How is his adaptability? Is he ready to face a dentosophical path that will involve him at 360 degrees? The answers to these questions are the feedback we are often asked, and as osteopaths, we have the possibility, through the primary respiratory mechanism, to evaluate these aspects and improve them by implementing the dentist’s work. We have to see the patient not only as a set of dysfunctions to be treated but in the most holistic sense of the term.
WHAT IS DENTOSOPHIE
Dentosophie is a method defined by a humanistic approach to the art of dentistry. Based on functional techniques, the approach highlights the link between the balance of the mouth and the balance of the human being and, in a broader sense, of the whole world.
It is a ‘path’ of self-knowledge through the mouth, guided by the dentist-dentosophist who uses functional principles to recover masticatory dysfunction. Numerous functions are expressed in the mouth other than chewing, like breathing, swallowing, and phonation. These functions, if not balanced, can lead to shape disharmonies; that is why we have to take them into account. The aim is to investigate these dysfunctions, the correction of which leads to the recovery of a more harmonious form. The dentosophist also considers that the reasons for functional disharmonies are based on the ‘impression’ that the ‘invisible part’ (psycho-affective and neurovegetative) leaves on the structure. That is why the action of will and awareness involved in therapy (of which the patient is an active part through personalised exercises) will allow a complete recovery of the person’s balance. The osteopath plays an essential and complementary role in the process, supporting the patient’s system during the evolution of external and internal changes, helping him/her if the body’s compensatory reactions or previous blocks are to impede the correct progression of the process.
During the meeting, we will discuss the aspects a dentosophist has to consider to enable the patient to re-educate the disharmonious functions of the mouth (chewing, swallowing, phonation and breathing) through the use of myofunctional techniques. We will explore the deeper reasons that are behind the alterations. We will focus mainly on the primary (functional) aspects that determine the dentist’s treatment and on the actions required from the patient to become a ‘key player’ in the process. We will describe the tool employed (activator) and its features.
We also aim to explain the role of the osteopath and the situations in which his collaboration is needed. The relationship dentosophist-osteopath is essential and promotes harmony following the rebalancing of the rest of the body’s functions, especially if there are previous blocks or resistances in the whole system connected to the mouth.

Claudia Sormani, M.D.
Claudia Sormani graduated with honours in dentistry in Pavia in 1994. At the beginning of 2000, she approached natural medicine with enthusiasm. She perfected her skills in various branches of classical dentistry and combines her treatments with knowledge from various disciplines: biological dentistry, homotoxicology, phytotherapy, flower therapy, posturology, nutrition, and anthroposophy. Thanks to the myofunctional techniques, the dentosophie allows her to follow the patient on a ‘self-knowledge’ path through the rebalancing of functions. Since 2008, she has been combining conventional treatments with DEPT (energy audit endpoint) and chromopuncture, according to P. Mandel, which enables her to guide patients on a path of physical, psychic, and spiritual rebalancing.
