Routine checkups are necessary to maintaining good oral and dental health, and dental radiographs (X-rays) are essential for diagnosing and treating certain dental conditions. When you visit Calkins Family Dentistry to receive dental care, we provide you with a modern, thorough X-ray service to make sure we don’t overlook any potential issue. We utilize the latest in digital dental radiograph technology to give us the clearest image possible using the lowest possible exposures.
These tests can help us view difficult-to-see parts of your mouth so we can give you more accurate care. We provide a few different types of dental X-rays in our Lincoln, NE office, which helps us better see what dental issues you may face and give you the most effective treatment.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Calkins for over 20 years. All of my kids have gone to him since they were toddlers. Very conservative in his approach, never tries to do an expensive treatment if it isn’t necessary. Great at giving numbing shots, can’t even feel the needle.”
“I’ve been going to Dr. Calkins for several years and will continue to do so. Tim is very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and patient. I very much appreciate the time he takes to educate me about dental health, to show me my x-ray, or to explain a procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Calkins and his excellent team.”
“You know when you come back from your dentist feeling good you know you’ve picked the right one. I could go to any dentist in Lincoln but Dr. Calkins and his staff are it for me. After seeing him for over 20 years I’ve always been treated as if I’m his only patient. Who feels strongly enough about their dentist to actually post?”
