Ascents® clinical aromatherapy is the only hands-off, evidence-based way to relieve dental patients’ anxiety* in a clinical setting while mitigating malodors.
The Ascents diffuser system was developed specifically for use in healthcare environments in order to deliver consistent doses of clinical-grade aromatherapy.
The Ascents Calm No. 34 formula, used in concert with our commercial-grade diffuser, is the product of extensive research* and features essential oils which have been shown to help reduce anxiety and discomfort for dental patients in waiting room environments and dental operatories.
Ascents® diffusers utilize our proprietary Ascents Gel technology, formulated to provide at least 30 days of aromatherapeutic benefits even at the highest levels of diffuser output.
The Ascents® diffuser silently and effectively circulates scent within areas of up to 600 sq. ft.
Scent output is optimized via customizable interval settings and timing options, preventing onset of scent habituation.
All Ascents formulas are non-toxic, hypoallergenic and designed to enhance patient experience in medical, dental and other clinical environments.
