Digital x-rays provide improved comfort of mouth x-rays and less cranial exposure to radiation. With digital x-rays, patients can have around 70% less exposure to radiation than conventional x-rays. Digital x-rays also produce larger and clearer photos to better source hard-to-see cavities and the images can be easily stored on a computer and transferred to different dentists or orthodontists for referrals. Digital x-rays are also more environmentally friendly in the long run.

Televisions are situated on the ceiling in the dentalFX so that when the dentist leans his patients back in the chair, they are able to watch television. This serves as a distraction from the fact that you are in the dentist office and has managed to alleviate tensions associated with dental visits for a lot of anxious patients and especially children. (We have two TVs in every op, one for the patients and the other to inform the patient, we like to show exactly what we see, so the patient has a better understanding of what’s going on; we like to educate the patients here at dentalFX).
