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.
