Professional Development: SC Radiation Safety
  Radiation Safety DANB

Radiation Safety Certification is required for anyone taking x-rays in a dental office. DHEC recognizes certificates from several sources:

  • Accredited SC tech schools
  • The DATS program in Mt. Pleasant
  • DANB
  • And the SCDA (exam for chairside-trained assistants)
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.

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.
