CE course offers guidance on appropriate use of radiography

ADA CE Online is offering a course authored by the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs, Radiographic Examinations: Choosing the Right Patients and Equipment.

The course is designed to help dentists and the dental team limit patients’ exposure to radiation by explaining when it’s best used. That decision is often based on the patient’s health history, vulnerability to oral disease and the results of the clinical exam. Upon completion, participants should gain a better understanding of how to select patients for radiographic exams and the technical aspects of choosing and using equipment.

The course is available 24 hours a day/seven days a week. Member fee is $35 and the nonmember fee is $53. Participants will earn one CE credit upon completion.

The ADA CE Online course library features over 115 courses with free courseoptions. Courses for dental team members are marked “DT” on the website,

In addition, all ADA CE Online courses can be scanned and downloaded on smartphones and tablet devices. Users can download the app at the iTunes App Store or their mobile service’s marketplace by searching for “QR Reader.”
