Wand STA

Dr. Hakes and Dr. Eliassen both pride themselves in their gentle dental care, but they both have taken it a step further. The WAND STA (Single Tooth Anesthesia) is a delivery system that allows patients to be anesthetized without traditional injections. A tiny needle directs anesthetic to localized tissue areas for comfortable, quick numbing. In fact, we can get so specifically localized, we can numb a single tooth! No more numb lips for hours after your appointment!


More comfort & less anxiety

  • Significantly more comfortable than the traditional syringe.
  • Greatly reduces anxiety.
  • Can eliminate collateral numbness.

More efficient use of your time

  • STA enables multi tooth treatment in one visit without face and lip numbness.
  • Can go straight back to work without a numb face and/or lip.

Greater satisfaction

  • Many of our patients are more satisfied with and prefer The Wand vs. the traditional syringe.
  • The latest technology that you can immediately feel, or not feel as is the case most of the time.
