8 Hour Radiation Safety Update (8 CE Credits)

This syllabus is intended to provide information for the continuing education course, “Essentials of Dental Radiography for the Dental Assistant: Oral Radiography Review Course.”  The course is designed to provide dental assistants with eight hours of continuing education in the didactic and clinical knowledge necessary to maintain certification in radiation hygiene, radiation protection, and radiographic techniques. Since the use of dental imaging is ubiquitous in dental practices, the course also provides a review of dental radiography appropriate for dental hygienists and dentists.

Time permitting, the theory and techniques used for the placement, exposure, and processing of dental radiographs will be reviewed.  Basic concepts of digital imaging will be discussed, compared, and contrasted with conventional radiography as appropriate.  Professional, legal, and ethical considerations in dental radiography will be emphasized throughout the course.
