Dr. Andrea Stevens

Ottawa NuCalm dentist Dr. Stevens got her dental degree from Temple University in 1994, but she has never stopped her education. She has earned the rank of Fellow at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, the leading postgraduate institution for neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry.

She began practicing as a dentist in Ottawa in 2000, and she has sought to deliver unequaled dental care since that time. She has investigated many dental technologies that make treatment more comfortable and convenient for her patients. She added NuCalm because it was clearly a great way to help her patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during dental treatment.

NuCalm Is the Leading Edge in Relaxation Dentistry

Dr. Stevens became a NuCalm dentist because she like the opportunity to help patients feel more relaxed without using drugs to sedate them. NuCalm’s advanced technology utilizes the brain’s natural relaxation mechanisms to achieve a meditation-like state that helps people feel calm during dental treatment.

NuCalm uses the brain’s own neurotransmitter GABA as the first step in treatment. GABA is the neurotransmitter that your brain uses to shut down before sleep. Next, cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) is used to help disrupt anxious thoughts. The mechanism of CES is not precisely known, but one explanation is that it disrupts certain brain activities that are critical to the anxiety process. NuCalm also uses the brain’s natural following response. Exposure to beats can affect the mood by altering brainwave frequencies. NuCalm has developed a scientific approach to this that can more precisely put the brain in a relaxed state. And what is more natural for resting than blocking out the light, such as with an eye mask?

When combined, these four simple techniques represent a complex application of neuroscience that essentially shuts off a person’s anxiety response and replaces it with a meditative, dreamy state.

The Need for NuCalm in Ottawa

Recent statistics show that only 74% of Ottawans saw their dentist in the last year. Since most people would benefit from more than a single visit to the dentist each year, this means that people in Ottawa can and should do better about seeing their dentist.

Many of those who aren’t seeing their dentist avoid it because of their dental fear. We don’t know exactly how many, but since about 40% of Canadians experience dental anxiety, we expect that many people–including some who claim cost is to blame–aren’t going to the dentist because they’re afraid.

And even if dental anxiety isn’t keeping people from seeing the dentist, it can lead to unpleasant experiences, including excess discomfort, gagging, and tension.

But with NuCalm, everyone in Ottawa will be able to see their dentist regularly and have a more relaxing experience.

We invite everyone looking for this kind of experience to enjoy a complimentary trial of NuCalm at the office of Dr. Andrea Stevens.
