Basic Radiation for Unlicensed Dental Personnel
Presented by Dr. Brad Potter
Discover the importance of radiation education. Dental professionals who expose patients to radiation must complete minimum education and training requirements for operating x-ray machines in accordance with the Colorado Dental Practice Law. This course fulfills the lecture (didactic) portion of the requirement. You will learn about advances in oral radiology and participate in discussions of intraoral and panoramic techniques, principles, patient and operator radiation safety and machine operation.
At the end of the course you will receive a workbook to help you complete the clinical portion of the requirement under the direction of a licensed dentist or dental hygienist.

Parking MWDI Parking Map
For your convenience, we have free parking in two retail garages within the Beauvallon building (east-facing side). Both garages are accessed from Lincoln Street between 9th and 10th Avenues. Parking in these garages is available on a first-come, first-served basis. **If you are attending a large course/event at the MWDI, we recommend arriving early in case the garages fill and alternative parking must be secured. Be aware - the garages come up quickly after you cross 9th Avenue and both have left lane entrances. All numbered spaces within both retail parking garages (without "Reserved" signs) are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Do not park in any spaces with a red sign that says "Matrix" or “KCNC.” Do not park in the residential parking. Residential garages are at the back of the retail garages. The north and south garages are not connected. Both have open parking available. See attachment for more information.
