ACI Medical & Dental School offers Dental Radiology as a secondary program. It is also included in our primary Dental Assistant with Radiology Program. This program gives students all of the tools that they need to become dental assistants and licensed as a Dental Radiologic Technologist (DRT) by the New Jersey Radiologic Technology Board of Examiners.
For those who are already dental assistants but do not have their New Jersey license in dental radiologic technology, we offer the option of taking only the courses needed to obtain this license.
Our Dental Radiology Program Qualifies You as a Dental Radiologic Technologist (DRT)
Dental Assistants who have their license perform radiographic procedures or x-rays on dental patients and develop the x-rays for diagnostic purposes.
Our Dental Radiology Program is a great way for dental professionals currently working in the dental industry to get their license, so that they can perform these necessary procedures.
While we do not recommend this as a standalone course for those looking to get into the dental industry, we do offer it as such if all qualifications are met. Instead, students who do not currently have experience in the dental field should look into our Dental Assistant with Radiology Program. This comprehensive vocational program provides students with the education necessary to receive their certification in Radiation Health and Safety through the Dental Assisting National Board Examination and New Jersey State Licensure from the Environmental Protection Agency and also gives them the knowledge and skills needed to be a successful dental assistant.
ACI students have a higher pass rate on the DANB Radiation Health and Safety exam than the national average:
|Exam||ACI 2017 Pass Rate||2017 National Average|
|Radiation Health and Safety (RHS)||97%||85%|
