Updating your Dental Radiation Safety Program for 2022
What you need to know for your annual employee meeting. Review and update your Dental Radiation Safety program for 2022.
Of all citations issued during a dental radiation inspection, we’ve found the most common to be the absence of a site-specific radiation program. The purpose of a radiation safety program is to minimize radiation exposure for both patients and employees. Every state has its own regulatory body that sets additional requirements regarding radiation equipment and employee safety beyond those mandated by OSHA. In addition to this, a compliant program will require annual updates, employee training, and documentation.
Sounds like a lot to juggle right? Well, this is where we come in! After more than 10 years of research and development, our team of compliance experts has crafted the Dental Radiation Safety Program - an intelligent and fully modular program manual powered by our in-house FoxPath™ DRS software.
Our platform currently supports 10+ states; including California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Over the coming months we will continue to add states until we reach all 50! Even if your state is not currently supported, we encourage you to reach out to us so we can provide you with a timeline and bring you onboard ASAP. For information on how to get started, please reach out to us here, or give us a call at +1 (833) 369-7284.
We look forward to hearing from you!
