Radiography Training Program
The NHDS Radiography Training Program allows dentists to provide a convenient, affordable way for dental assistants to obtain radiography training in preparation for the Dental Assisting National Board Radiation Health and Safety exam, without the need for a classroom, travel and time away from work. This is an innovative nine-part, online training program. The cost is $295 per assistant for NHDS members and is an exclusive benefit of membership.
After successful completion of the online training, the assistant — under the supervision of a licensed dentist — must demonstrate the ability to perform an acceptable full-mouth series of images (including four bitewings) with a maximum of five retakes. After meeting all course requirements, a certificate of completion will be issued that will be signed by the supervising dentist. This course is an excellent preparation for the DANB exam.
How to Begin
Step 1: Dentists
- Be a licensed dentist in the State of New Hampshire.
- Create an account using the Create Account button above.
- Complete the short Supervising Dentist Tutorial on how to administer the radiography training program.
- Receive your Supervising Dentist ID code upon completion of the tutorial.
- Purchase course vouchers to assign to the assistant(s) who will be taking the radiography training.
- Share your Supervising Dentist ID code with your assistant. This code "links" you to the assistant. Once linked, you can manage your assistant's certification progress through your Account screen.
Step 2: Assistants
- Must be 18 years of age to expose radiographs.
- Create your own account using the Create Account button above after your dentist creates his/her account.
- Obtain your dentist's Supervising Dentist ID code and input it during your account creation process. This "links" you to your dentist so he/she can monitor your progress and print your certificate of completion.
- Click the Online Course Menu button to begin the nine-module radiography training program.
