The GV Dental Service installed new digital imaging equipment this year, making it faster and easier to obtain dental x-rays for diagnosis and treatment than ever before.

It now takes just 30 seconds, from the when the button is pushed until when the digital image appears in the patient’s file.

The new digital chip placed in the patient’s mouth to obtain the x-ray is now smaller and thinner, so patients are likely to feel more comfortable during the process.
