Facilities and Equipment
Our completely handicap accessible office is equipped with many state-of-the-art features. With the use of digital radiography for the x-rays that you may require, exposure to radiation is much greatly reduced and the quality of the x-rays is sharply increased to aid in accuracy of the surgery. The application of new computers and new updated software and intra oral photography has increased the speed and efficiency of our patient data and records keeping as well.

All x-ray equipment is registered and checked regularly by the Dept of Environmental Protection. OSHA safety standards are strictly adhered to and the sterile environment is tested and monitored very carefully. The cleanliness and safety of our office is something on which we pride ourselves.
