The gold standard in modern dentistry. Dr. Rana Nassar has incorporated the safest and most comfortable technology for his patients to deliver high quality care.

Combined with the fact that the image is taken in fractions of a second, patients can be confident that their exposure is extremely low. Digital X-Rays can shorten your dental appointment!

With digital X-rays, the sensor is able to instantly develop the x-ray and it projects onto the computer screen right before your eyes. Once on the screen, Dr. Rana Nassar is able to enlarge or magnify the x-ray for a better visual of your tooth and bone structure.
