Dr. Wayne G. Suway utilizes the Gendex GXDP-300™ digital x-ray technology for improved diagnostic capabilities and enhanced patient comfort.

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Wayne G. Suway, a dentist in Atlanta, has improved the overall treatment process at his practice by adding the Gendex GXDP-300™ digital panoramic x-ray system. With this new device, he is able to capture high-quality images of a patient’s oral anatomy with instant viewing capability. As a result, Dr. Suway notes how the overall treatment process can be expedited and the diagnostic potential enhanced – not to mention the more comfortable x-ray experience the technology can provide for his patients.

The GXDP-300™ is designed to take digital panoramic x-rays that reveal details at one of the closest possible levels. Through the increased clarity achieved by the device, Dr. Suway believes he can identify problems at earlier stages, increasing efficacy of treatment. Once the x-rays are taken, the images are instantly sent to a monitor for the Marietta cosmetic dentist to evaluate. By having the images readily available, he says treatment times can be improved, and patients can achieve a healthier set of teeth and gums in less time.

Dr. Suway explains how the GXDP-300™ can help in a variety of dental scenarios, as seen below:

  • Monitor the results from past procedures, such as root canals.
  • Identify new problems that should be addressed, such as TMJ disorder.
  • Plan for future procedures, like dental implant placement.

He says with the new device, patients can benefit from more accurate diagnoses and better precision with treatment.

Another advantage of the x-ray system is its convenience for patients. In his recent blog post titled: “New Digital X-ray Technology for Better Patient Comfort,” Dr. Suway discusses how the GXDP-300™ provides a more comfortable experience for those being examined. The state-of-the-art system provides adjustable features to accommodate children, adults, and even patients with such needs as wheelchair accessibility. In addition, it provides head support and ergonomic handgrips for more patient stability. Dr. Suway points out how this benefits the resulting images, as there is less movement to impact clarity.

Overall, Dr. Suway believes his patients can significantly benefit from the GXDP-300™, as it improves the overall process from both a doctor’s and patient’s point of view. He looks forward to its potential in helping him treat a variety of issues in the future.

I have known Dr. Suway for 30 years. My parents found him originally and made me a believer and life long friend and patient. In the years since, I have recommended my husband, son and friends. I would hear that going to the dentist was a fear of many people. I could never understand that because it was always a pleasure to come to Dr. Suway’s office. His staff are so professional, gentle and kind. It’s nice to see the same faces twice a year. You can tell they love working with him. I tell people that Dr. Suway gives the best shots – you can’t even feel a pinch. My son who hates needles, has no problem getting a shot for a filling. I love Dr. Suway’s personality. When you walk in the office you might hear him singing a country western song. I have porcelain veneers on my front teeth and am so thrilled. It’s been 10 years and they are still white and beautiful. He is an artist and perfectionist who loves to make people happy. I recommend Dr. Suway to become your dentist. He is a man of character and professionalism, yet down to earth. If you choose Dr. Suway, you’ll get an excellent dentist, but also a friend for life.

Dennis & Maria Liber

Dr. Suway is very relaxed and as a result we find that we are very relaxed as well. He takes the time to listen when we have concerns and he answers questions fully. We never feel like he is rushing from us to another patient. When we do need fillings, crowns or any other extensive work, he is concerned that we are comfortable and feeling no pain.

Through the years, we have found Dr. Suway to be a skillful perfectionist in all areas of his profession. He keeps abreast of and utilizes the latest dental techniques to improve and ensure the longevity of his patient’s teeth. He is a caring, personable professional who always greets his patients with a sincere, ready smile. Dr. Suway is also a ‘confidence booster.’ I say this because by the time I was 30 years old I was wearing dentures. He immediately recognized a self-conscious young wife, mother and professional who needed his professional help. His approach to boosting my confidence was through dental implants. At that time dental implants were a relatively new procedure. Dr. Suway carefully explained to me the advantages of dental implants and was proactive in working with my insurance provider to ensure that they understood the correlation between the required dental procedures and health plan benefits. I can smile with confidence forever because of Dr. Suway. Dr. Suway’s staff is a mirror image of his positive professionalism. They are always courteous, knowledgeable, efficient and personable. Appointments are scheduled at your convenience. You know that your time is valued because at the precise time of your appointment you are greeted, then immediately seen by either Dr. Suway or a hygienist. His work is outstanding and he is one of a kind.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Suway since 1988. Dr. Suway and his staff have provided us with state-of-the-art oral health care in a pleasant, friendly and compassionate environment for many years. Dr. Suway has done many procedures for me including root canals, crowns and a bridge. His work is beautiful. He is truly a perfectionist and that is exactly what I want in a dentist. I would never trust my smile to anyone other then Dr. Suway.
