The Limited Dental Radiography program is designed for the registered dental assistant or dental assistant trainee who is seeking eligibility for the Iowa Dental Board Dental Radiography qualification. Kirkwood Community College Continuing Education has received formal board approval for this coursework by the Iowa Dental Board. Registered nurses with an active nursing license are also eligible to apply. In this course, the student will be responsible for proficiently completing content through both written and clinical applications. Students must be currently working in a dental office in order to register for this course. Clinical performance check-offs will be the responsibility of the dentist(s) at the office where the student is employed. Once a student has been approved to register, a required one-hour orientation will be scheduled with the instructor at Kirkwood’s main campus. After orientation, the student will complete coursework independently and will not attend any classes at the college. Students will be given up to six-months to complete the entire course. Upon successful course completion, the student will be eligible to take the Iowa Dental Board approved Dental Radiography registration exam. Dental CEUs and Nursing Contact Hours are not awarded for this course. All students who successfully complete the coursework and pass the post assessment evaluation will receive a Certificate of Completion.
