While even traditional dental x-rays are considered safe, our Pediatrics on Park dentists take every measure possible to keep every child safe. State regulations set exposure limits, and we will never exceed them. Our experienced team is fully trained to use all of our equipment properly. We take our safety precautions seriously. Your child will be provided with a lead shield or bib for additional protection.

X-ray imaging allows our team to prevent problems by addressing the cause early.
