#5 – Works with X-rays

We duplicate xrays for patients that transfer to another dentist (we always keep the originals) or for an insurance company that requires them for payment. Our goal is to provide clear, accurate duplicate x-rays.

A. Print Paper x-rays

Original x-rays are valuable in case of any legal challenges to our treatment. In addition, it is likely that the client will return to become a regular client in the future.
In any case, our client’s x-rays are only valuable to the dentist treating this client. This means we need to provide this new dentist, and/or insurance company clear, accurate duplicate x-rays.

There a few things you need to get started, so gather the digital camera, an x-ray view box , and patients chart.

1. Place view box laying flat
2. Place x-rays on view box
3. Turn on digital camera- switch camera to regular mode (don’t use GreenMode)
4. Turn off flash on camera
5. Focus the camera and snap your picture
6. Take memory card and download your picture into the patients file in Dentrix
