What equipment should my dentist have?

Jonathan B. Levine, DMD
While having every piece of state-of-the-art equipment does not necessarily guarantee expert care, the following technologies can help your dentist provide the high quality care you are seeking. Ask if they use any of the following:

  • digital x-rays
  • digital cameras
  • the latest autoclave equipment
  • fiber-optic hand pieces

You should also inquire about patient communication technology, which can aid your dentist in explaining whatever concerns he may have or procedures he may propose. Ask if they use:

  • computer imaging
  • patient education software
  • intra-oral camera
