The Executive Director of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements, David A. Schauer, discussing the NCRP Report No. 160 cited “self-referral [doctors doing their own imaging], the process by which nonradiologist providers buy imaging equipment and refer patients to these in-office scanners as a primary, preventable driver of the dramatic increase in radiation exposure”* to the public. Your doctor refers you to our imaging center only when imaging is required. Using our highly developed digital technology, we work closely with your doctor to extract the most diagnostic data possible from a scan.
C-Dental upholds the "ALARA Principle" set forth by the California Department of Health - As Low As Reasonably Achievable. Our technicians are leaders in radiation protection and patient safety. We make sure each patient receives the lowest radiation dose possible, while maintaining excellent diagnostic quality. Our 8 San Francisco Bay Area and 5 San Diego County offices offer focused, large and hi-res view Cone Beam CT scans. Our NewTom CBCT is the only machine with SafeBeam™ technology, which adjusts the radiation dosage according to the patient’s size. We also offer all conventional 2D digital X-Ray services.
C-Dental X-Ray is a Continuing Education California provider for dental professionals. C-Dental clients and patients can be assured that they will continue to receive the best dental imaging service available from technicians with the best training available.
About our Owner:
Jerry Peck, CEO
Jerome N. Peck received his radiographic training at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry from 1972-1974. He was certified as a dental laboratory X-ray technologist (DLXT) in 1976 by UC Berkeley. As a pioneer in the use of CBCT and 3-D case planning software, Mr. Peck is often sought out to offer expert advice on the use of 3-D imaging for implant case planning and guided surgery. He lectures nationally and internationally on airway analysis, radiation dosage and the application of CBCT and intra-oral 3-D scanning for implant case planning and guided surgery, from patient diagnosis to final prosthesis.
C-Dental imaging centers promote a patient-centered approach to interdisciplinary dental care. We provide dental imaging, planning software, and e-collaboration tools that allow you to work with other doctors efficiently or do interdisciplinary work yourself. Our commitment to quality dental imaging is driven by these 5 principles of clinical evaluation:
- FORMULATING TREATMENT PLANS
- LOGICAL CONCLUSION ON TREATMENT SEQUENCE
