Frequently Asked Questions:
Our staff is trained to make your first visit as stress-free as possible. The initial evaluation includes a review of your health history including your dental history, and necessary x-rays to support visual screening. We will also answer any questions or concerns you may have, and strive to make you as comfortable as possible during your time with us.

Dental X-ray examinations provide valuable information that helps Dr. Rafik Riad evaluate your oral health. How often radiographs should be taken depends on your present oral health, your age, your risk for disease, and any sign or symptoms of oral disease you may be experiencing. X-rays are helpful in detecting any new cavities, determining the status of your gum health or evaluating the growth and development of your teeth. Full mouth x-rays are taken at least once every five years, and check-up xrays are taken at least once a year. If you have a history of decay, Dr. Rafik Riad may recommend having your dental xrays taken more frequently.
The amount of radiation that we are exposed to from dental X-rays (especially digital X-rays used in our office) is very small compared to our daily exposure from things like, cosmic (outer space) radiation. Visit www.ada.org
