The Wyoming Dental Association provides a cost-effective home-study radiation safety course for dental assistants.  The course, available only to WDA members, is approved by the Wyoming Board of Dental Examiners and meets the requirements outlined in the Dental Practice Act.

Member dentists may arrange for their assistants to participate in the course consisting of four DVDs and four workbooks.  Each dentist shall ensure that assistants taking the course shall be supervised and trained by a qualified trainer in the dental office setting.  The trainer shall possess one of the following qualifications:

Dentists are encouraged to participate in the program to ensure coordination of course educational objectives between the employing dental office and the candidate to obtain radiography safety skills and knowledge.

DURATION:
The course curriculum is designed to use several modes of instruction: DVD lecture, workbook study, supervised in-office training and self-test.  The dentist participating in the course may keep the workbooks, but DVDs should be returned to the WDA office within 10 days.  A late charge of $10 will be billed if the DVDs are not returned within 14 days.  If the individual does not feel confident that he/she can pass the exam, they can continue to study the workbooks and receive instruction and training.
