Radiation Safety Certification is required for anyone taking x-rays in a dental office. DHEC recognizes certificates from several sources:
If your certification is from another state you will need to take the exam offered through the SCDA in order to become radiation safety certified in SC.
- Accredited SC tech schools
- The DATS program in Mt. Pleasant
- And the SCDA (exam for chairside-trained assistants)
Registration for the exam (including a study guide) is $40. If you would like to purchase the video that goes along with the study guide, which is recommended, but not required, there is an additional $40 charge for a total of $80. You may purchase the video as a CD-ROM to be kept in the office, or you may view the video online for 90 days.
Exams will run from 11 am-1 pm in the Academic Center Auditorium
at Midlands Tech Airport Campus.
