Please know that part of your imaging prescription might very well call for the taking of diagnostic facial photographs of you and close-up views of your teeth. Consequently it is important that the patient presents with hair combed and teeth well brushed.
Please make every attempt to avoid having piercing's done (to the head and neck area) immediately proceeding the patient's appointment. This is because of the necessity to remove all jewelry (from the neck up) during the taking of the images which otherwise could result in the "covering up" of critical anatomy that is being imaged as well as resulting in a generalized diminished quality of radiographs.
Therefore, we respectfully request that all ALL JEWELRY (from the neck up) and HAIR CLIPS be removed PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT.
