For dental nurses, completing further training in dental radiography can be a stepping stone to acquiring more responsibility within your dental team, and to extending your scope of practice. Whether you study the NEBDN Certificate in Dental Radiography or the BDA’s own qualification in Dental Radiography, you will learn how to use X-rays safely and how to take common dental radiographs unsupervised. 

Even if you aren’t planning on further study, all registered DCPs must undertake at least five hours of CPD in radiography and radiation protection in every CPD cycle (except for dental technicians, who can do CPD in materials and equipment instead). Therefore we are pleased to include an article focused on the core CPD topic of dental radiography this February in BDJ Team.
