Tuesday's Tip: Radiation Scare? Get the Facts!

We want to give you the facts about the safety of digital dental x-rays.
      
A typical digital x-ray (the kind we use in our office) requires less radiation expousre than people receive in a typical day in normal work or home environments. One day of everyday, normal background radiation is 7-8 microsieverts. A digital x-ray requires about 6, less than one day's ambient radiation. This fact flies in the face of a recent inflammatory news article reporting on deeply flawed research that has been significantly criticized by dental radiology experts. 

We take your health and safety very seriously. If you have any questions, please ask.
