    Dr. Smiley says

    As a health professional, a dentist is obligated to protect the total oral health of their patients. In order to provide a minimum standard of care, a dentist must take radiographs to diagnose any periodontal or dental disease such as cancerous tumors or cysts that may not be seen upon a visual examination. Radiographs are also used to check for cavities and evaluate the extent of decay.  Congenitally missing or impacted teeth such as wisdom teeth are often identified this way, and the presence and extent of bone loss due to periodontal disease is easily seen through dental X-rays.

    At Smiley Dental Group, we take x-rays only when necessary - which is not very often. But in order to provide the best care for our patients, we must have at least one diagnostic x-ray on file to assess our patients' current oral health state, and to use this as a baseline going forward. We are sorry we cannot accept patients who refuse to allow us to take radiographs because that prohibits us from being able to deliver even a minimum standard of care as required by our profession.

    Very bad experience with Smiley today. I set an appointment today with them for cleaning only and he kick me off because I don't want to take X-Ray because I have no problem without X--Ray for more than ten years. Beside, my younger daughter cancelled the same day appointment because she felt bad for mom, Smiley came out to argue with me, he I told him my elder daughter is still in the process of teeth cleaning, he immediately came back in and got my elder daughter out of the dental bed. monster

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
