Due to elevated concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus and recommendations from the Michigan Dental Association, we will only see patients on an emergency basis and postpone any elective dental care from March 17, 2020 through March 31, 2020. If your child has an appointment during that time, we will reach out to you in order to reschedule their appointment.

If you are experiencing a true dental emergency, please contact our office. We will have staff available to answer you phone calls and care for your emergency dental needs.

Are x-rays necessary?

X-rays are a vital and necessary part of your child's dental diagnostic process. Without them, certain dental conditions can and will be missed because they cannot be seen during visual examination. X-rays not only detect cavities, but they are also used to evaluate injury, to track the progress of dental development or plan for orthodontic treatment. Dental care is more comfortable for your child and more affordable for you if dental problems are found and treated early.

With contemporary safeguards, the amount of radiation in a dental x-ray examination is extremely small. In fact, the x-rays represent a far smaller risk than an undetected dental problem. The equipment used today restricts the x-ray beam to the area of interest and filters out unnecessary x-rays. High-speed film and lead aprons assure that your child receives minimal amount of radiation exposure.
