Event Details

The OPG and Lateral Ceph licensing course is open to Dentists, Dental specialists, Oral Health Therapists, Dental Hygienists, and Dental Assistants (with Certificate IV in Dental Assistance Radiography – copy required). Permission to conduct this course/lectures (within Australia and NZ) has been obtained from AHPRA. This course is approved by various state
Radiation health authorities including VIC and QLD. The delegates of these states can apply for the licenses with their respective Radiation health authority by submitting the certificate of competency provided by Dr Sholapurkar. NT does not endorse such course but usually accepts interstate courses. SA also does not approve such course as well but the SA delegates may participate/attend this course if they wish to upgrade their knowledge.
This course consists of lecture module followed by demonstration of taking an OPG and a Lateral Ceph radiograph through a video presentation directed and produced by Dr Sholapurkar. An open book written theory examination/quiz will follow which the delegates will have to pass by obtaining at least 50% marks. The exam paper will consist about 35-40 questions (each carrying 1-3 marks) and 1-2 minutes time would be allotted for each question (the exam would run for approximately 50 minutes in total). Dr Sholapurkar will be assessing these exam papers. Upon passing the exam, the delegates will be provided with a signed certificate of competency. In addition to this, the delegates will also receive the certificate of attendance where they will be granted 5.5 CPD points. The examination is for those who wish to obtain their licenses. Delegates who already have their licenses can still appear for the course (to upgrade their knowledge) and obtain the CPD points. Some additional requirements are required in some states and their regulations keep changing from time to time. Please check with your local radiation authority to see the requirements prior to attending this licensing course.
