Many people have questions about dental x-rays. At Newton Pediatric Dentistry, we abide by the principal of ALARA- As Low As Reasonably Acheivable.
We have invested in the latest, low radiation technology and take our responsibility as health care providers extremely seriously. Please do not hesitate to ask us if you have any concerns or just want to know a little more information about our policies or procedures.
The following chart can help you understand a little better what is actually going on when you get a dental xray.
