NuCalm surpasses 100,000 positive dental patient experiences

All-natural relaxation technology being adopted by dental practices across U.S.

KERRVILLE, Texas--Solace Lifesciences, creators of NuCalm, has announced that NuCalm has been successfully used by more than 100,000 dental patients across the United States since its commercial release in September 2010.

Dental practices in 44 states are currently using the system, which is an all-natural, drug-free technology to remediate stress at the midbrain level.

“Seeing 100,000 applications in such a short time is a testament to the power of NuCalm and the market demand for an all-natural solution for relieving patient stress,” commented Solace Lifesciences President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Poole.

“The patient demand and positive response is remarkable and we’re proud of the benefits NuCalm is providing.”

According to the American Dental Association, more than 60 million people a year avoid dental care due to fear and anxiety which can have a negative impact on overall health. NuCalm is a safe and minimally invasive solution for alleviating patient stress and anxiety.

NuCalm combines the synergistic benefits of four technologies:

• Proprietary dietary supplements with all-natural ingredients that interrupt the “fight-or-flight” adrenaline response
• Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation–-an FDA-cleared device for treating anxiety, insomnia, and depression (research indicates a mild electrical current enhances the effectiveness of the NuCalm dietary supplements)
• Proprietary neuroacoustic software--relaxing music with embedded binaural beats entrain brain wave frequencies to a pre-sleep state
• Light-blocking glasses reduce stimulation of the optic nerve and help maintain deep relaxation

The NuCalm system naturally interrupts the human stress response, guides the brain to its pre-sleep state, and maintains deep relaxation where a person is physically incapable of experiencing a stress response.

NuCalm is nonnarcotic and causes no significant negative side effects and needs no recovery time, allowing patients to return to normal activities immediately after an appointment. NuCalm not only helps dentists do better, faster, safer dentistry, it also helps people resolve their dental anxiety and transforms dental appointments.

Dr. Omer Reed of Phoenix, Ariz., praises the system.

“NuCalm is changing our profession," he said. "I’ve used it every day for nearly three years with great, predictable results. It’s one of the best anxiety reducers I’ve seen, including medical hypnosis, IV sedation, and Nitrous. One of the best things about NuCalm is that there is no toxicity.”

Added Poole: “NuCalm has broad implications across the human experience, but we targeted dentistry because of the long unmet need for an all-natural solution to dental stress and anxiety. NuCalm is also currently being effectively used in sleep medicine, oncology, psychotherapy, eating disorder clinics, corporate wellness, and professional athletics.”

Debra Kone of Geneseo, N.Y., is a patient who has used NuCalm.

“I have always dreaded going to the dentist," she said. "Unfortunately, I have had a lot of dental work. When my dentist, Dr. Sandra Eleczko, recommended NuCalm, I decided to try it. It was the first time I felt no pain at all. With the gentle music playing in the headphones and the dark glasses, I felt totally relaxed. I would definitely recommend NuCalm to anyone who needs dental work done and is afraid of going to the dentist. I even slept better that night. I now actually look forward to my next dental appointment and using NuCalm again.”

Some 100,000 dental patients have used the patent-pending NuCalm technology across the U.S. Of that number, 95% state they would use NuCalm again, and 98% say they would recommend NuCalm to family and friends.

“NuCalm truly is a paradigm shift in dentistry," said Dr. Craig Savin, reconstructive DDS, forensic odontologist for DMORT, NDMS, DHHS & FEMA, FBI NCIC, and Expert Witness.

"Patients literally get a chance to relax and have a spa-like experience while clinicians get the opportunity to focus exclusively on their dentistry.”
