Radiography Courses

The Wyoming Dental Association provides a cost-effective home-study radiation safety course for dental assistants.  The course, available only to WDA members, is approved by the Wyoming Board of Dental Examiners and meets the requirements  outlined in the Dental Practice Act.

Member dentists may arrange for their  assistants to participate in the course consisting of four DVDs and four  workbooks.  Each dentist shall ensure that assistants taking the course shall be supervised and trained by a  qualified trainer in the dental office setting.   The trainer shall possess one of the following qualifications:

  • A  dental assistant with a valid radiology permit issued by the Wyoming  Board of Dental Examiners.
  • A  dentist or dental hygienist with a valid license issued by the Wyoming  Board of Dental Examiners.

The course curriculum is designed to use several modes of instruction: DVD lecture, workbook study, supervised in-office training and self-test.  The dentist participating in the course may keep the workbooks, but DVDs should be returned to the WDA office within 10 days.  The cost for the course is $50.
