Digital X-Rays

X-rays are an important part of your dental exam, because many problems with the teeth, roots, and jawbones cannot be seen without them. Digital X-rays use smooth sensors so there is no need for the sharp film that pokes your cheeks and gum like with traditional X-rays.

Because digital X-ray images don’t require any chemical processing, they are available within seconds. Digital X-rays are safe, too. Some studies have shown that they emit up to 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays! If it’s been a while since your last checkup, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the comfort and speed of digital X-rays!

Intraoral Cameras for Patient   Education

Digital photographs taken with our intraoral cameras give us a clearer view of areas that can be difficult to see in a standard visual exam. This unique technology allows us to perform advanced cavity detection using fluorescent light technology, helping us find possible problem area before they become painful. These high-resolution images are also a vital patient education tool, allowing Dr. Clark to show you exactly what she sees during your exam. Now you can take a more active role in your dental visit!

Cone Beam CT

Cone Beam CT (Computed Tomography) is a very low dose technique used to examine the jaw and structures of the skull. The traditional or digital X-ray shows a flat picture of the jaw whereas the CT scan gives us a complete picture of the jaw.

Standards for Sterilization

Our sterilization room is visible to all of our patients, so that they can see for themselves that we go above and beyond to make sure their health and safety are a top priority. We divide our instrument processing area into four sections to ensure you are receiving the safest dental care possible. We also complete a third-party spore testing of all our sterilization equipment to verify that all sterilization equipment and instruments are working properly.
