New drug-free relaxation technology rated by REALITY while surpassing 50,000 positive patient experiences in the U.S.

KERRVILLE, Texas--Solace, the creators of NuCalm, an all-natural, drug-free technology to alleviate anxiety and stress, has announced that NuCalm has been used by 51,200 dental patients across the United States since its commercial release in September 2010.

Dental practices in 44 states currently use the NuCalm system.

“Seeing 50,000 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 President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Poole.

“The patient acceptance and clinical success of NuCalm in dentistry has surpassed even our most ambitious goals. The positive response is remarkable and we’re proud of the benefits NuCalm is providing – improving the dental experience one appointment at a time. NuCalm not only helps dentists do better, faster, safer dentistry, it also helps people resolve their dental anxiety and transforms dental appointments from a typically inconvenient and stressful experience to a positive, comfortable and relaxing one. It’s a unique phenomenon that people can go to the dentist to relax, but that is the reality we are now seeing with NuCalm.”

Dr. Omer Reed of Phoenix, Ariz., a pioneer in the field of dentistry for more than 40 years, has praised the system.

“NuCalm is changing our profession. I’ve used it every day for two years with great, predictable results.”

NuCalm has received a 4-STAR award from REALITY, which analyzed the NuCalm protocol with a team of dental practitioners nationwide and released their final report in mid-September.

“For an initial review, we’re very pleased,” said Poole. “A 4-STAR award is unprecedented for a new technology, especially from a company that is new to dentistry with a product that is not dental specific.”

NuCalm: The all-natural solution to dental anxiety

NuCalm: Improving the dental experience one patient at a time
According to the American Dental Association, in the U.S. alone, more than 60 million people a year avoid dental care mostly due to fear and anxiety, which can have a significant negative impact on their overall health. NuCalm is becoming a safe and less invasive solution for alleviating patient stress and anxiety.

NuCalm combines the synergistic benefits of four proven technologies:

• Proprietary all-natural chewable tablets with 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 catalyzes the effectiveness of the NuCalm chewable tablets)
• Proprietary neuroacoustic software – relaxing music with an embedded binaural beat entrains brain wave frequency to a relaxed alpha state
• Light-blocking glasses reduce stimulation of the optic nerve and help maintain relaxation

NuCalm causes no negative side effects and requires no recovery time, allowing patients to drive and return to their normal activities immediately after their appointment. Some 51,200 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% state they would recommend NuCalm to their family and friends.
