Dental x-rays and the environment!

Dr. Bonnick takes extra care to protect you from unnecessary radiation exposure by utilizing the technology of digital x-rays. Not only do these types of x-rays significantly reduce the level of radiation a typical dental patient could experience, but it is also environmentally friendly. Digital is computer generated so it leaves no negative footprint on the environment. This green technology also allows Dr. Bonnick to eliminate the use of harsh developer chemicals from the office.

We are all exposed to natural radiation in our environment. The amount of radiation exposure from a full mouth series of x-rays is equal to the amount a person receives in a single day from natural sources.

Dental x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are considered safe. Family dentists take the necessary precautions to limit the patient’s exposure to radiation when taking dental x-rays. These precautions include using lead apron shields to protect the body and using modern, fast film that cuts down the exposure time of each x-ray.

This paired with other green technology, we use in the office, makes Dr. Bonnick a safe place to get the care you need without the radiation or chemicals you don’t. Call today 336-841-0000 for a tour of our state of the art dental facility!
