Dental Radiography 1 DENT 9239

On Campus

Our Dental Radiography 1 course provides an introduction to the principles and applications of intraoral radiographic techniques and quality assurance procedures and helps you meet the requirements of the Healing Arts Radiation Protection (HARP) Act. Through this pre-clinical course, learn how to process and mount dental radiographs, how to recognize and solve faulty radiographs and how to identify normal radiographic landmarks. Practice a variety of intraoral radiographic techniques and radiation safety protocols to develop the skills you need to be able to expose and process radiographs of diagnostic value.

We are currently reviewing our Dental Radiography courses to make sure they continue to meet student and industry needs. If you have any questions, contact the Continuing Education Community & Health Services department at 416-415-5000, ext. 2126, or at
