Plano Dentist Adds Revolutionary X-Ray System to State-of-the-Art Facility

PLANO, TX--(Marketwired - October 30, 2014) - Dr. John Hucklebridge, a premier Plano cosmetic dentist who has served the community for more than two decades, is now using a hand-held portable X-ray system that allows his staff to easily take images of patients' teeth.

The NOMAD Pro 2 is a special X-ray unit that gives dental professionals an easy solution to completing quick, low-radiation X-rays without leaving the patient's chair-side. Traditional X-ray machines are mounted to the wall and placed in a special room away from any operatories. Conventional X-ray systems also can serve only one to two operaties, whereas the NOMAD is battery-powered and portable, making it ideal for dental offices with several operatories. The 5-pound NOMAD provides clear images and the battery can last for more than 100 exposures.

"This incredible new technology allows us to sit chairside while administering X-rays," said Dr. Hucklebridge, who is highly trained in providing permanent teeth in a day. "The biggest advantages to the NOMAD are that it's convenient and time-friendly for the patient. We can receive clear X-ray images in half the time, which allows us to quickly return to our treatment."

Plano Smile Studio is a comprehensive dental practice in a state-of-the-art facility that provides family and general dentistry, sedation dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, dental surgery, Invisalign, veneers, Zoom in-office whitening, tissue resculpting, dentures, crowns and implant dentistry.

Dr. Hucklebridge is a highly acclaimed dentist who was rated by his peers in "D Magazine," a Dallas publication, as one of the best cosmetic dentists practicing in the Dallas and Plano area. He received his bachelor's degree from Baylor University and then graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas.

Dr. Hucklebridge moved his practice to 6001 Windhaven Parkway, Suite 200, nearly three years ago. Earlier this year, Plano Smile Studio teamed up with skilled practitioners to offer a surgery suite for patients. Traditional dental practices often refer patients to other dental offices for extractions, root canals, periodontal surgery, implant placement and sinus lifts, but the Plano Smile Studio clinic provides all of those services in its comfortable new suite.

Dr. Hucklebridge is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, a designation awarded to dentists who complete 500 hours of continuing education and pass a lengthy examination. Fewer than 10 percent of practicing dentists earn the prestigious designation. Dr. Hucklebridge is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, Crown Council, Texas Dental Association, Dallas County Dental Society, Dawson Center Advancement of Dentistry. He also evaluates new and existing dental products for Clinical Research Associates and works with the organizations Giving Back a Smile and Smiles For Life.
