Our office employs many types of new technology. These technologies benefit the patient by offering improved diagnosis and care.

Digital X-ray
Digital x-ray’s reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays while providing superior diagnostic capability.  The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen improves the patient’s ability to understand and follow treatment.  Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film as the images display directly on the computer screen.  It’s also a very green technology.  There is no longer a need for film, developer and other chemical waste.  It’s better for you and it’s better for the environment!

Microscopes and Imaging


The use of specialized operating microscopes means that the doctor is able to get a detailed look at the work they are doing during all phases of your endodontic treatment.  The additional magnification and illumination allow them to work with great precision and see small details such as calcified canals and fractures.  The Endodontist is able to more accurately diagnose and treat the patient using a dental surgical microscope to improve the potential outcome of the treatment from “good” to “excellent”.  Further, some microscopes may be equipped with high resolution video and digital photography allowing the doctor to enhance patient communication and document treatment.
