Course Outline:

This crash course is intended in the first place to freshen up dentists’ and dental auxiliaries’ knowledge on intraoral and extraoral radiographic techniques that can be useful in daily dental practice.

Both 2D and 3D imaging will be discussed and examples will be provided throughout the entire course. Information regarding radiation doses and how to put these into perspective with daily natural background radiation and how to answer patient questions about radiation safety and potential radiation risks will also be addressed.

The last part of the day will be dedicated to an interactive session on radiographic interpretation.

Learning Objectives:


The participants will be able at the end of the day:

  • To answer questions about radiation doses.
  • To apply the knowledge provided on radiographic techniques in their clinic.
  • To demonstrate their knowledge regarding radiographic interpretation.
