Dentistry has been found to have ancient origins, but the profession as we know it today began to take shape during the 18th century. And since that time, in nearly 300 years, modern dentistry has developed into a remarkable science that yields many great benefits to its patients.

For this reason, Dr. Anne Nicholas and her team of specialists continue to bring you the most cutting-edge, technological advancements in dentistry, in order to provide you with the best care. Don’t settle for some behind-the-times, bargain basement, discount dentist. Make sure you’re enjoying top-of-the-line dental care!

Case in point: Did you know that Dr. Nicholas and her team of specialists now offer Carestream’s CS 8100 3D imaging system? For the uninitiated, this incredible piece of equipment is a state-of-the-art, dental X-ray machine that emits a beam shaped like a cone that uses computed tomography, an imaging procedure that creates detailed pictures of specific areas inside the human body.

The CS 8100 employs award-winning 2D technology to create exceptional panoramic images within seconds, and it uses both 2D and 3D images to complement each other and to enhance our diagnostic capabilities. This is extremely important to our patients, because precise 3D representations help us to ensure that you’re receiving accurate diagnoses.

Dr. Nicholas and her team of specialists appreciate the CS 8100 because it allows for safer examinations: It confines radiation to the particular area of focus, helping to keep radiation exposure as low as possible. In fact, this 3D technology actually reduces exposure much more than what you’d receive with traditional CT systems.
