Dental Assistants Taking X-Rays

Pursuant to Section 20-74ee(3), Connecticut General Statutes, nothing shall be construed to require  license as a radiographer or limit the activities of a dental assistant as defined in Section 20-112a, provided such dental assistant is engaged in the taking of dental x-rays under the supervision and control of a dentist licensed pursuant to Chapter 379, Connecticut General Statutes, provided the dental assistant can demonstrate successful completion of the dental radiography portion of an examination prescribed by the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) or a dental assistant student, intern or trainee pursuing practical training in the taking of dental x-rays provided such activities constitute part of a supervised course or training program and such person is designated by a title that clearly indicates such person’s status as a student, intern or trainee.

Please note that the licensed dentist should maintain appropriate documentation of the dental assistant's successful completion of the dental radiography portion of the DANB examination.
