Shawneen M Gonzalez DDS, MS, Diplomate ABOMR received her DDS from the University of Washington School of Dentistry and an MS in Stomatology and a certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. She is currently in private practice. Previously she held positions as the director of the oral and radiology clinic at Oregon Health and Science University School of Dentistry and the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry.

Dr. Gonzalez is a member of

  • American Dental Association (ADA)
  • American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (AAOMR)
  • American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (ABOMR)
  • American Dental Education Association (ADEA)
  • International Association of Dentomaxillofacial Radiology (IADMFR)

I created this site as an answer to the repeated questions of where to find more radiographic examples of normal anatomy and disease processes when I was teaching.  I hope you find this helpful in showing examples of radiographs as well as a basic overview of oral and maxillofacial radiology.  If you should have any questions or would like to see any specific topics, please feel free to email me at DrGstoothpix (at) gmail (dot) com or leave a comment below. Thanks!

    Dear Dr. Gonzalez,

    I am currently undertaking a group project creating a dentistry based poster as part of the first year of my dentistry course (BDS) in Newcastle England. On behalf of my group could I ask for your permission to use some of the images from your site in our work?

    Yours sincerely,

    Daniel J Nesbit

      You are more than welcome to use images from this site. I ask that you reference where the images came from with either the site link or DrGstoothpix. I’d be very interested to see how your project turns out when your group is done with it if possible. Thank you for asking first.

        Hello Dr. Gonzalez,

        As a 3rd year dental student I have found your site very useful. I am also working on a presentation on ecoptic eruption of permanent first molars and was wondering if I could use some of your images on the site in my presentation. Thank you!

    This is an excellent resource- thank you for creating it. Keep up the good work!

    I was a dental student at Iowa when you were getting your specialty training. Glad to see you are doing well, though I hope you are not a Nebraska fan!!

    This is an excellent blog, and a great rescource. I would like to ask permisson to use 2 of your bitewing radiographs, for a mock up treatment plan. This plan will be on the British Association of Dental Therapists website, as a tool for dentists to learn how to treatment plan to dental therapists. We do not charge for this and we would reference where the images came from.

    Thank you

      Yes, you are welcome to use 2 of the bitewing radiographs as you put where they came from (as you said you would). I’m glad you find this site useful and if you have any topics you would like to see, please drop me a line and I will see what I can do. Thanks.

      Ken, I will work on creating a page for bifid condyle but you will typically see what appears to be a notch on the superior aspect of 2D radiographs. (I know that is a little information). Page/cases coming soon. Thanks for asking. 🙂

    Dr. Gonzales, do you have any pantomographs of first molars with severe decay/breakdown when the other teeth have no restorations or caries? Like a case of Molar Incisor Hypomineralization or Developmental dental defects?

    • Dr. Shawneen Gonzalez Post author

      I’m still in search of cases I have saved of this. I know I’ve come across it before but apparently forgot to save an example. I hope to find a good case soon. 🙂
