Dental Radiographic Machine Requirements

This excerpt from The California Radiation Control Regulations guides you through the regulations of your xRay unit.

The ADA, in collaboration with the FDA, developed recommendations for dental radiographic examinations to serve as an adjunct to the dentist’s professional judgment of how to best use diagnostic imaging. This means that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to the interval between dental X-rays. The “ALARA” principle, a phrase coined in 1973 by the International Commission on Radiologic Protection stands for “As Low as Reasonably Achievable.”
