About this work


This film for dental professionals looks at the danger to dental practitioners of using x-ray equipment. It notes many people are aware of the value of dental radiography but many people do not understand the risks (such as infection and malignancy when handling the equipment). The film then goes on to explain the nature of x-rays and x-ray safety.
