In 2015 we acquired a camera called CariVu! This is a camera that can detect decay, cracks and other defects in your teeth, often before x-rays can detect them, and without using any radiation! Our hygienists will look at your teeth at each visit to check for abnormalities. This camera is not a substitute for x-rays, but an amazing adjunct to help us keep your teeth healthy for your lifetime!
From routine cleanings and fillings to bruxism devices, the Norwich family dentist at Greene Dental Group is equipped to handle all your dental needs. To help you understand your options, we've included descriptions of some of our leading services on this page.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
At Greene Dental Group, we offer a full range of services, from hygiene care to full mouth reconstruction. At your initial visit with us, we will evaluate your oral health and educate you about any treatment that you may need. Your diagnosis and treatment recommendations can be explained as thoroughly as you like via experienced team members and modern computer animations.
We understand that many people have anxiety about dental care and we want to help you!
There are many ways we can help alleviate your fears, so ask us how. You CAN achieve the smile you deserve!

Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth.

Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter.

Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More...
