Digital x-rays for Minneapolis-area families … more than 60 years of maintaining healthy teeth and gums for Twin Cities kids, teens and adults!
Rhode Island Dental is Committed to your Health and Safety
Years ago, Rhode Island Dental adopted a safer approach to its family dental practice. For decades dentists have used traditional x-ray technology (remember wearing that lead bib?) for taking pictures of your mouth, and they used an array of chemicals for developing those x-rays and for cleaning dental tools. Not at Rhode Island Dental, though!
For more than 95% of our x-ray work, our dental practice uses digital x-rays, and for those, we use no harmful chemicals. Other initiatives that we have adopted include:
- Digital radiography, which eliminates harmful chemicals such as silver and lead, virtually eliminates radiation and provides immediate “pictures” that are of higher quality than traditional x-rays
- Biodegradable disinfectants and cleaning products
- Sterilization of tools using steam instead of toxic chemicals
