Smile Dental Group’s digital X-ray technology also means that the dental team can easily store and access patient records, reducing the need for physical storage space and making it easier to share information with other healthcare professionals. Overall, Smile Dental Group’s use of digital X-rays is just an example of its commitment to providing the most advanced and effective dental care available.
