Intra Oral Camera

A picture is worth a thousand words—and that’s certainly true when it comes to taking care of your teeth and gums. That’s why one of the tools of the trade here at Metropolitan Dental is an intra-oral camera.

Intra Oral Camera used to take pictures of your teeth for review at Metroplitan DentalThis tiny video camera, mounted on the end of a pen-sized wand, takes pictures inside your mouth that help our dentists document and diagnose your dental conditions. We store these images in your electronic chart as a baseline for planning and monitoring your long-term care.

Best of all, because the camera is linked to our computer system, you can tour along with us on your overhead monitor! Giving you a dentist’s-eye view of what’s going on makes it easy for Dr. Walters and Dr. Kaplan to point out any problems and explain the best options for treatment.

Our hygienists love it because they can show you areas of your teeth and gums that need extra attention during your daily cleaning routine—and even demonstrate ways to improve your brushing and flossing.

Besides, it’s pretty cool seeing the inside of your own mouth.

If you would like to know more about any of the technology we use, feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

  • Metropolitan Dental—Now Open

    To all of our valued patients of Metropolitan Dental:

    Hello everyone! This is coming to all of you with good news! We have finally received official approval to head back to work. We have been closed for almost three months. Needless to say we are all quite excited to head back to Metropolitan Dental and to once again see all of you for your dental needs.

    COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us, including the shut down of dentistry across the province. We understand that many of you have been forced to wait for your dental care and we deeply appreciate your understanding and patience while we were closed. Your health and well being continue to be our highest priority as we carefully prepare and update our practice procedures. Please be assured that we will be taking care of you, just as we will be taking care of our families and ourselves.

    We know that our capacity of getting back to work will not be 100% initially, but we will be working hard to see all of you. We have opened our doors as of June 8th. We ask, unless you are experiencing an emergency, please wait for us to call you, instead of you calling the office. This will help to make our job of scheduling and re-scheduling patients easier. If you would like to email us to schedule or update an appointment click here.

    There are some new protocols that have been put in place by the Minister of Health for your next dental appointment, so we will be emailing these out to you prior to your appointment. These new screening processes are important for everyone to follow, we thank you for your co-operation.

    Once again, we thank you for your trust and patronage over the decades. Please remember as businesses continue to re-open, the DENTAL office is one of the cleanest and most sterile places that you will encounter. We have been working hard to ensure that commitment to you.

    We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces again.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Barton Walters, and Dr. Andrew Kaplan

    And the entire team at Metropolitan Dental
