About 3D Imaging
When was the last time you visited a dental office? If it was a for an annual check-up, your trusted dental hygienist most likely took X-rays of your teeth and jaws to get a closer look at what’s going on inside your mouth. Did you know that at City Smiles DC, led by board-certified dentist, Dr. Stuart Ross, we have state-of-the-art technology (Sirona GALILEOS® machine) to take a 360º scan of your jaw and skull, and translate it into a 3D model? We do, and we pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with the latest in innovative imaging technology. 3D imaging not only helps us assess our patient’s problems, but allows us to show our patients how to better care for their smiles.
We want our patients to feel confident in the treatments and procedures that we perform, and this means creating a comprehensive plan to improve the look and health of the smile. With 3D imaging, Dr. Ross can not only show you what your teeth looks like underneath it all, but can also explain to you what changes need to be made. If you would like to learn more about 3D imaging, please call one of our Patient Coordinators to schedule an appointment.

"I've been seeing Dr. Ross for thirty years. He is extremely talented and professional. He takes his time to makes every procedure as comfortable and pain-free as is possible. Very friendly staff give out free M&Ms. What's not to love?"- J.S. / Yelp / Oct 01, 2017
"Not a big fan of going to the dentist, but even cleanings are a treat at City Smiles. Dr. Ross is up on all the latest tech and makes the experience pretty darn comfortable. I recently had to have a crown replaced and while this has been an ordeal at other dentists, the afternoon I spent was really great. Cozy blankets, eye protectors, a place for your stuff while you're waiting for the crown to cook, any kind of music you want, and just an overall very relaxing experience, all things considered. I've been going to Dr. Ross since I moved to DC about 4 years ago and he and his team are the best."- D.H. / Yelp / Sep 24, 2017
"Dr. Ross is a dental artist! He beautifully repaired our teenage son’s broken front tooth, eased fears, and explained the longer term plan and how the tooth will change with maturity. It is such a relief to have the excellent team at City Smiles caring for our family. I have been a happy client for more than 25 years."- J.B. / Google / Sep 18, 2017
"This was an excellent experience. The staff was kind. The doctor was very thorough. He took away pain I was having from another dental facility. It is clean and neat. I highly recommend City Smile in DC."- L.S. / Google / Sep 04, 2017
What to Expect
What makes 3D imaging unique? When you looked at your past X-rays, were you able to tell what the differences were between teeth and the other issues? Chances are that the answer is "no." Here at City Smiles DC, we utilize 3D imaging machines to help our patients understand their oral health issues, and use these 3D models to show patients what their completed treatments could look like in the future. Thanks to the Sirona GALILEOS®, we can show the patient exactly what they need to know. It makes it professionally easier for us, and the patient can be better informed when making treatment planning decisions, and be more aware of how to take better care of their teeth.
Skip Making Molds
With 3D imaging, most patients can skip the mold making all together, and see for themselves how their treatment will progress right there on the monitor. Dr. Ross can also utilize these images to create more accurate dental implants, crowns, onlays/inlays, and more. It streamlines the process a little more, making the treatments better planned and performed with fewer issues.
