Digital X-Rays Reduce Radiation by up to 75%

Our practice is very pleased to provide digital imaging. Using this technology, we take images of your teeth with a digital sensor and download them directly into our computer, where they are immediately available. This method results in 75% less radiation than conventional X-rays. No more waiting for images to develop and no more chemical waste to pollute the environment.

Make Informed Decisions with the Intra-Oral Camera
Understanding every aspect of your dental condition is vital so we can create a bond of teamwork in planning your care. One of the ways Dr. Garrett brings this about is through the use of a high-tech tool, the intra-oral camera. This amazing device is a miniature video camera that displays a closeup picture of the inside of your mouth. You can see for yourself what work needs to be done and which teeth are healthy. You can then make fully informed decisions about your dental care. You’ll love how this works!

Meeting or Exceeding the Highest Standards of Sterilization
Our office takes instrument sterilization very seriously. When single-use tools can’t be used, we clean and sterilize all instruments after every use with a special unit called an autoclave. We regularly monitor this unit to ensure the highest level of safety and cleanliness. Your health is too important to us to take even the slightest risk.
