This one day course satisfies the Virginia Board of Dentistry’s Radiation Certification requirement (18VAC60-30-80), thus enabling individuals certified to take dental x-rays in Virginia. This course will not provide clinical competence in taking x-rays. Attendees must be fluent in the English language. The emphasis of this course is on the safe use of x-ray equipment. Instructional methods used include a PowerPoint presentation, lecture, question and answer. No one will be exposed to x-ray radiation during the class. Clinical competence by students in making dental radiographs is not an expected outcome of the class. The class will have short breaks only.
Students should bring lunch as there is no time to leave campus. If you are more than 10 minutes late to class you will be denied entrance.
