Our Dental Technologies
Affinity Dental has invested in digital radiography to enhance image quality in order our dentists to more accurately diagnose and detect problems. Digital x-ray technology reduces patient exposure by up to 90% when compared to film-based x-ray procedures used in the past!
Our office also provides CT (or computed tomography) scans, which are three-dimensional images of your teeth and bone structure that can assist your dentist in understanding how your teeth, their roots, and nerves are positioned, as well as your overall bone structure and thickness. It also has the added bonus of allowing your dentist to detect and monitor oral cancers.
Additionally, we also have an iTero® scanner in office, which allows us to scan your teeth for Orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign. Along with assisting in creating treatment plans for Invisalign iTero scans can help document changes in tooth and gum health and natural movement.
It’s also easy and safe to transfer images between computers, to specialists, and so on. Last but not least, no film equals no waste for the environment, which is why digital x-rays, CT scans, and iTero scans are a green solution, too!
To learn more about our digital scanning offers or book an appointment, contact us today.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
The Velscope system shines a painless blue light in the mouth that allows your dentist to better see lesions such as cancer. If a lesion is found it is photographed under the blue light, measured, and followed up to make sure it is not serious.
Contact us to make an appointment to get your oral cancer screening today!
At Affinity Dental Clinic we take patient communication and education seriously. We’re proud to offer a state of the art website and blog to keep our patients up to date with our latest promotions, service additions, and oral health news.
Our Best Dentist Reviews
We truly appreciate all of the kind words we’ve received from patients over the years, however we are unfortunately no longer permitted to display testimonials we’ve received on our website, due to regulatory changes from the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia. Instead, we are now displaying reviews left by patients at third-party review sites.
Always great experience at Affinity. I removed three wisdom teeth at once a week ago. Tons of thanks to Dr. Nazemi and all staff, never thought the extraction could be done so smoothly and comfortably. Staff are very helpful and answered all my questions in details with full patience in following days when I have any questions. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a dentist.
Best timely client service. Good follow up. Staff are wonderful and always ready for help. Dr. Jain treatment is excellent.
I found Affinity through Google as my previous dentist was always packed and hard to schedule (usually have to wait two weeks or longer, as Saturdays are always fully booked).
My experience with Affinity was great. Great receptionist. Love my hygienist (but I forgot her name........so sad 🙁 ). She was very approachable, gentle and give great advises. She did an awesome job with the cleaning - was really happy that she truly cared.
I also had my second appointment the next day for filling - my dentist and the staff was super good too. Sorry for not remembering the name.
Overall, I had a good experience and will be returning for sure.
