Stress-free dental appointments
If you feel any stress or anxiety when thinking about your dentist visit, we highly recommend reaching out to talk to Dr. Strevey about your fears prior to, or during your visit. We make every effort to understand your individual needs to ensure your comfort at our office. We’ve helped many patients overcome their dental anxiety in our relationship-driven practice because we believe that having compassion and mutual trust helps us work together so you can have healthy gums, teeth and overall health.
While some patients with anxiety have become used to sedation during their dental visits, we don’t want our patients to be impaired to make decisions, feel groggy afterwards, or to disrupt their day.
A relaxing dental experience without drugs
We are always seeking the best ways to deliver greater comfort, relaxation and happiness during your time with us. That’s why we’re proud to introduce NuCalm, the latest and most effective deep relaxation technology.
NuCalm provides you with a deep relaxation experience during your appointment, so you’ll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated – without drugs or side effects.
What is NuCalm?
NuCalm is a patented, all-natural stress intervention technology. NuCalm scientifically sequences four relaxation therapies to mimic your body’s own process for ‘winding down’ and preparing for sleep. You will feel the same way you feel just as you are about to fall asleep.
How Does NuCalm Work?
Deep relaxation is achieved through 4 simple steps. NuCalm is administered by our dental team at the beginning of your appointment and takes just a few minutes to apply. While listening to soothing music, you will relax comfortably in the chair for the entire appointment.
Step 1: Apply the NuCalm cream to neck to help relaxation.
Step 2: Apply patches behind ears for the Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation device. Research shows this helps facilitate the relaxation response.
Step 3: Listen to soothing music presented through headphones. Layered in the music is proprietary neuroacoustic software designed to guide you to deep relaxation.
Step 4: Light-blocking eye mask or glasses to block visual stimulation and help maintain relaxation.
What to expect: You will feel completely normal, just as relaxed as you are about to sleep. You’ll be able to think, hear and talk to us as needed without impairment. NuCalm helps to relieve everyday stress and anxiety. That’s why it’s been so beneficial in dentistry. In fact, over 400,000 dental patients across five continents have experienced NuCalm and 97% have found it beneficial.
