Visiting the dentist is scary for many patients – anything we can do to enhance their experience will only improve the likelihood of them returning. I would definitely recommend HappyMed as a worthwhile investment for every dental practice.
For us, the glasses are an important tool to make the hospital stay as convenient and relaxed as possible for our patients. The effects of distraction and relaxation are clearly noticeable, the use of tranquilizers has already been reduced markedly.
Using the HappyMed system, we have revolutionized our prophylaxis in particular. Prolonged treatments are more pleasant than before. The patient is enthusiastic about the technology and calms down after a few minutes, meaning the prophylaxis specialists can focus on their task completely.
I am highly satisfied with HappyMed. The application is very successful, especially when children wear the glasses: HappyMed ensures excellent distraction. What is more, HappyMed has a huge advertising effect. There are patients who visit my practice just because of HappyMed.
With HappyMed, we offer our patients a full cinematic experience during surgeries under regional anesthesia. Through this system, the operation theatre is perceived as less threatening from the patient's perspective
One particular patient went from being absolutely distraught during a tooth extraction without HappyMed, to being totally calm during bone grafting and dental implant placement with HappyMed – the patient experience was drastically improved. The patient remained cooperative throughout treatment as she could still hear me, but she was distracted enough by the video to stay fairly relaxed.
The top priority is to help our patients avoid anxiety and discomfort before undergoing medical intervention. HappyMed Video Glasses support our individualised patient care, reduce the use of sedatives / anesthetics and accelerate recovery after surgery.

Many people associate surgery with anxiety or discomfort. Anxious patients often require more sedation or to be fully anaesthetised. By using the HappyMed Video Glasses, we offer patients a gentle and non-pharmacological distraction method in the form of films right before and during their operation. The reduction in medication is especially important for elderly patients or those with dementia as it poses a significant risk of harmful side effects.

A local anaesthetic procedure combined with slight sedation is recommended, but isn't always possible. The HappyMed Video Glasses are beneficial for very anxious patients. When the patient is distracted, sedation can be superficial. Superficial or moderate sedation is especially beneficial for patients with conditions such as sleep apnea, COPD, home oxygen etc.
