What to Expect at Your First Visit
All patients should register at the reception desk. The receptionist will confirm your appointment and discuss payment. Your X-rays may be taken by a radiology technician or a dental student, depending on the type of image required. Most simple X-rays of individual teeth are taken by students. The appointment may last for up to 90 minutes depending on the type and number of images required. As soon as the quality of the images is confirmed, you may leave. All X-rays will be interpreted with the supervision of trained faculty. Continuing patients at the dental school will be contacted later by their assigned student dentist.
