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.
My visits to Affinity Dental Clinic have always been fantastic. Like a lot of people, I don’t look forward to visiting the dentist. The folks at Affinity, however, make seeing the dentist as easy as anyone possibly can. The reception staff are friendly and have been very flexible in accommodating my busy schedule. Dr. Jain and her team are professional, helpful, and provide an overall excellent experience. The clinic is well equipped with the latest technology which gives me confidence that my teeth are being well taken care of. I am very grateful to have come across such a fine dentist!
We are glad that we had our first dental check-up with Affinity Dental Clinic. As new immigrants, our expectations are quite high esp in terms of service and equipment. We were not disappointed because the staff are friendly and very accommodating. My two kids enjoyed their check-up because the staff tried to make them feel-at-home (not to mention the freebies!). Special shoutout to Ms. Mary Ann and Ms. Sharon for being extra accommodating and nice to my kids. Great job!
I'm so amazed how Affinity Dental Team assist me outside the scheduled appointment considering I'm a relatively new patient. Very personalized attention & care! Very helpful & kind! I will definitely recommend this dentist place to my friends and relatives. Thank you again.
