Course Description: The use of radiography for medical diagnosis is a key component to the oral health professional. Although the dental practice exposes patients to some of the lowest amounts of medical radiation, it is important to stay current on the safety and best practices to protect the patient and the provider. This course will review the science and safety of radiology in accordance to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. This course will also provide you with the most current policies and procedures of radiation exposure and practice, and proper disclaimer information to post in the healthcare setting.

  Upon completion of this course, participants will:

• Understand radiation science

• Review X-ray imaging techniques and safe practices

• Know how to properly maintain a quality assurance (QA) program, safety plans, and documentation

• Review regulations and policies per the guidelines set by the PA DEP
