"Radiation.......It is a message that has resonated in many clinics and hospitals. Yet there is one busy place where it has not: the dental office." that makes us sound like a**holes who have no idea/concern for radiation exposure. additionally, the title of this article is totally misleading. seems that the NYT has followed the journalistic tecniques of Fox news. :laugh:

Typical junk article. Speaks mostly about cone beam CT, yet very few dentists actually have those. Those that do have them are not using it every year on a child. Sure, ortho might use it for treatment planning, and OMFS might use it, but that's not the same thing as the kid getting bitewings at his checkup.
