My sister actually referred me to this Ventura location. I haven't had the best treatment at other dental offices in the past so I was looking for a new place with excellent care. I am so glad I found Channel Islands Family Dental Office Ventura they have met my expectations above & beyond. The staff is wonderful they are all so respectful & nice they make you feel comfortable & relaxed. Perla has been great with keeping up with getting all of my paperwork submitted to insurance. Approval has been fast and they are very quick with getting your next appointment scheduled & @ times that work best with your schedule thats a huge plus for me. It's been an amazing experience working with Dr. Nicholas Young he is the best dentist I've seen in a very long time. I plan to continue coming here as long as I can receive treatment from him. I trust him and know he's doing the best he can to do for the job that needs to be done and he cares about his work & patients. I absolutely recommend this office for emergency dental work and all general dental care. I've actually had my daughter's records transfered here as she will start getting her dental work done at this office location too and I'm going to look into the orthodontist they work with for my son. I'm putting my trust into this practice to care for my family's dental needs. Thank you Channel Island Family Dental Office Ventura for all of your dedicated work and making my dental experience great again.

I've always hated the dentist especially when it came to cavity fillings. My 2 experiences here have been nothing but great! The 2 Dr's who performed my fillings were quick and careful. I literally felt like I was out of there in 5 minutes. Made my experience an awesome one coming here.

DENTAL X-RAYS

Nowadays it is very common that when you visit your dentist, you are asked to take an x-ray. There are many reasons to take an x-ray, either dental (periapical) or panoramic, which will allow our dentists in Oxnard,  Santa Paula, Ventura, Newbury Park or Port Hueneme to be a fundamental tool to evaluate the parts of the mouth and detect hidden conditions that are not seen with the naked eye. This helps them to obtain an accurate diagnosis of some oral diseases, or to make a complete evaluation of all the structures.

1. WHAT ARE DENTAL X-RAYS?

They are images of the teeth and their neighboring structures that are obtained by an X-ray machine. These devices emit electromagnetic waves that can pass through teeth, bone, and tissues and then to form an image on a “film”; this can be “analog” (conventional) or digital. There are different types of dental x-rays; we have the intraoral and extraoral, being the most common the Periapical and Panoramic.

  • 3. WHAT ARE PANORAMIC RADIOGRAPHS?

They are radiographs that provide us with a detailed “panorama” of the patient’s condition. They give us a broader general vision since they cover both jaws and neighboring structures such as the maxillary sinuses, floor of the nostrils, among others.
