Now includes Dental Assisting National Board’s Radiation Health and Safety Examination

The program includes 25 didactic hours, 20 lab hours and a required clinical practicum with competency testing in a dental office that performs intraoral radiographic procedures, using both paralleling and bisecting angle techniques, and has digital x-ray equipment. Students can locate their own dental offices that are willing to provide this clinical experience under the supervision of a licensed dentist, licensed dental hygienist or licensed x-ray technologist.

The instructor will provide an explanation of the clinical requirements along with necessary paperwork to be completed by the chosen office.
