||This course puts into practice knowledge gained from DNHY 1106 Dental Radiology Lecture. Students expose full-mouth series (film-based and digital), extra-oral and specialized radiographs on adult and pedodontic patients or mannequins. Emphasis is placed on radiation safety practices, infection control and record keeping. Students will process, mount and evaluate radiographs for diagnostic value and quality. Emphasis is placed on radiological interpretation and patient education. The lab and clinical experiences are designed to create an opportunity for students to enhance their efficiency and quality of their radiographic techniques.
