Dental x-rays

Question:

How long does it take to get a copy of your dental x-rays?

Answer:

Dental offices are frequently asked to provide copies of dental x-rays for patients or insurance companies. Sometimes the office has only one person with the training and expertise in this area. The procedure itself is not time consuming and can be done in less than 10 minutes; however, if the office is depending on one person for all copies, then it depends on the employee's availability, how many copies are made daily, and then the length of time for the copies to arrive in the mail.
