Choose a clinic session when you register, as space is limited. Participants must be 18+ years of age.

This is a review of the basic concepts of oral and maxillofacial radiology. The course covers the historical background of X-rays, radiation physics, biology, radiation protection, infection control, dental X-ray machine components, dental film, digital receptor, anatomical landmarks, bitewings, periapical exposures, processing and mounting films, and identifying and correcting exposure or processing errors. Participants will expose, process, mount, and evaluate the radiographs on manikins.

In this four-hour clinic session, participants will take a written exam; take satisfactory periapical, bitewing, and occlusal film; properly process film; mount and label radiographs; become familiar with dental panoramic and cephalometric radiographs; and self-analyze radiographic technical and processing errors.
This course meets the requirements of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Board of Dentistry and the New Hampshire Board of Dental Examiners and is an excellent review for dental assistants planning to take the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) to become a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA).

This is a hands-on course and includes lunch on the day of the lecture.
