About this Course
***This class is only for students who have completed Dental I in the Spring 2023 semester.
This updated course blends two integral components of the Dental Assistant Program into one: Dental II and Dental Radiology. It will combine important and innovative lectures with hands-on facility experience and provide students with a more streamlined approach to earning the Dental Assistant Certificate. Dental Assisting II is an 100-hour course which provides Dental Assistant students with the fundamental principles upon which Dental Radiology is based. The course will cover basic radiation health and safety—an introduction to dental radiography and equipment and the production and evaluation of dental radiographs. Topics include understanding dental radiation, process radiographic film, identify and correct errors, expose and evaluate radiographs, mount and label radiographs, apply infection control techniques. Course content will focus on preparing the student to sit for the “Radiation Health & Safety” (RHS) and the “Infection Control Exam” (ICE) portion of the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) Certification as required by law in the state of Connecticut to expose radiographs in a dental setting. The DANB RHS and ICE exams are administered by computer only at PROMETRIC Testing Centers.
