Radiography Licensing & Exam Review

Properly (and legally) operating dental X-Ray equipment and performing dental radiographic procedures in Maine requires dental assistants to have a current Maine Board-approved license in radiology. To get your license you’re required to pass the Dental Assistant National Board (DANB) Radiation Health and Safety (RHS) exam.

Deep Dive: Radiography Exam Review

The New England School Of Dental Assisting offers a review of the important skills and knowledge for radiology, so you’ll be prepared for your exam. We’ll cover topics like the history of X-rays, radiation physics, biology, radiation protection, infection control, dental X-ray machine components, dental film, digital receptors, anatomical landmarks, bitewings, periapical exposures, and mounting films. You’ll practice performing x-rays from start to finish on manikins.

Our hands-on approach gives students the best preparation to take the DANB written exam. You’ll feel confident about taking satisfactory periapical, bitewing, and occlusal radiographs. You’ll be comfortable and skilled with dental radiographs, and you’ll be able to self-identify radiographic technical errors. Our review is a great way for dental assistants to prepare for the DANB radiography exam and to move their careers forward becoming a Licensed Dental Assistant (CDA).
