Dental professionals are responsible for ensuring minimal radiation exposure through adopting the principles of “as low as reasonably achievable,” or ALARA. Individuals who operate dental X-ray equipment need to understand the associated health risks of radiation, as well as the rules and regulations of radiation safety. Abiding by equipment guidelines and adhering to infection control standards to prevent the spread of disease are also important in the safe capture of radiographs.
