Digital x-rays help diagnose cavities while they are tiny, often allowing for less invasive treatment. If they are caught early enough, decay may be stopped with some minor changes to your child’s homecare routine.

Using digital x-rays, our doctors can look for teeth that haven’t erupted yet, make sure your child’s jaws and teeth are developing well, and monitor whether orthodontic treatment will be needed in the future.

Today’s digital x-rays expose your child to less radiation than ever before. Lead aprons and taking x-rays only when necessary further reduce your child’s exposure.

Linda is great and she puts up with me. I really can’t do doctors or dentist but they make it tolerable for me. Conrad is amazing as well. The massage chairs and TVs on the ceilings make the time pass quickly. I highly recommend.
