Help your dental assistants attain their 2023 professional development skills by enrolling them in the FDA’s MyDentalRadiography online program. Getting them started is fast and easy. First, you create an account at mydentalradiography.com/FDA and complete the brief supervising dentist tutorial so you understand your responsibilities. Then, purchase a voucher for the 9-unit educational program and assign it to your dental assistant. The student will receive an email with log-in information and a link to the training site.
Once the online training is complete and a comprehensive test is passed, the student exposes a full-mouth series of radiographs including four bitewings under your supervision. If you’re satisfied with their work, you sign the certificate of completion. Then the assistant applies to the state for licensing. Eliminate all the barriers to training with this Florida dental board approved affordable, online alternative. Vouchers cost just $285 for FDA members and $385 for non-members.

Education opens so many doors and can help people grow personally, in their careers and in their earning capacities. Dental assistants can join the back-to-school movement this fall by seeking certification in radiography. The easiest way to become certified to expose radiographs is to take the Florida Dental Association’s online radiography training course.
It’s completely online! Employees can start any time, study at their convenience, any time, any day, and for as long as they want. No travel, no classroom, no health risks.
It’s affordable. Online tuition is only $285 for FDA member dentists.
Once licensed by the state, employees will have new skills to contribute to your team, greater job satisfaction and more diverse tasks.
Get them registered!
The first step is for the supervising dentist to create an account at mydentalradiography.com/FDA and complete a short that explains their supervising responsibilities. By state law, When the tutorial is completed, the supervising dentist is assigned an identification number and can purchase and assign vouchers to staff members. The dental assistant who is to take the training receives a “welcome” e-mail and can create an account and get started learning right away.
About the course
The training consists of nine modules, each with a quiz to test the student’s learning in preparation for the final test. The final test covers the online course material and must be passed. Multiple retries are permitted. After the test is passed, the dental assistant must expose a series of full-mouth radiographs, including four bitewings, with no more than five retakes permitted. The radiograph exposures must be under the direct supervision of the dentist.
Once a certificate of completion is produced, the dental assistant applies to the state of Florida to be licensed to take radiographs. Once the state approves the application, radiographs can be exposed under the general supervision of a dentist.
This training is also available to dentists who are not members of the FDA. The cost for non-member dentists is $385 per voucher. This is still another way that FDA members receive value for their membership.
