High quality x-rays are key to the success of your surgery. Dr. Sarka prefers to take his own x-rays. That way we can ensure high quality and that they we have exactly the imaging we need to treat you properly. We have advanced digital imaging capabilities in the office including 3-dimensional CT Imaging. If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, we will do our best to use those x-rays. You may request that they forward them to our office.They must be current and show the current condition of the area to be treated. If any additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility. In many cases we can save you money by billing your medical insurance for x-rays. If you have any questions regarding x-rays, call our office Waterville Office Phone Number 207-873-0117.
