Dental Radiography and Radiation Protection

Dental staff in the UK are required by law to be "IRMER Trained". This law applies to everyone involved in taking and/or processing radiographs.

Staff registered with the UK General Dental Council are further recommended to undertake 5 hours of verifiable CPD in radiography / radiation protection during each 5-year CPD cycle.

This Dentaljuce module on Dental Radiography and Radiation Protection enables you to meet your statutory obligations to the law, the GDC, and the CQC. It takes you through the necessary physics and biology, the legal aspects, justification, optimisation, quality assurance, and lots more. The CPD certificate states IRMER & IRR compliance.
