Chair-side computers and overhead TV’s: Chair-side computers allow us to view your x-rays without leaving the chair. The overhead T.V/Computers are also used in patient education and for viewing your favorite T.V. program while receiving dental services.
Intra-oral camera: If a picture speaks a thousand words, then our intraoral camera speaks volumes about your oral health! Our intraoral camera uses a tiny fiber optic wand to easily take vivid photographs of the inside of your mouth. When indicated, we will take intraoral photos that will allow us to let you see what we see.
