Replacing Full-Mouth Dental X-Rays with Low-Radiation 3D Scans

Dr. Beth Skovron now offers low-radiation 3D scans at her dental practice, Heritage Dental. The state-of-the-art technology called the GALILEOS® 3D Dental Conebeam provides a 3D rendering of the head and neck area to assess those areas, using the lowest radiation level possible.

“I recognize that dentistry no longer means being a doctor of teeth. It means caring for the entire head and neck area, as well as the whole body,” states Skovron. “We can sometimes find irregularities in the oral cavity that give us hints to problems with the rest of the body.” Anyone concerned not only about the health of their teeth, but also the overall health status of their head and neck can receive this assessment.

Patients will receive an immediate diagnosis and treatment plan in only one visit, which means greater security. “It has revolutionized the way I can screen my new patients. I have found that incorporating this technology into my practice has made a tremendous improvement in diagnosis of asymptomatic or silent problems,” discusses Skovron. “I cannot imagine practicing without it now and feeling that I give my patients the best and most advanced level of care they deserve.”

Skovron prides herself on creating a relaxing and anxiety-free dental visit for all of her patients. She accepts Aetna PPO, Delta, MetLife and Guardian.
