DIAGNOdent

Did you know that half of cavities found in a child’s teeth can go undetected by current diagnostic techniques? However, our office now offers a new diagnostic method that can more accurately define caries in teeth.

Dr. Peterson offers a unique service that can detect caries at the earliest stage. The DIAGNOdent Laser Caries Detector is over 90 percent accurate in detecting even the smallest lesions that don’t even appear on X-rays! Early detection enables us to better preserve and protect your teeth.

Digital Radiography

With our new digital X-ray system, we are now able to evaluate your child’s teeth more thoroughly than ever with up to 90% less radiation exposure compared to normal dental X-ray films.
