2. Guides & Tools

Positioning and exposure settings have the biggest impact on your radiograph quality.

We have gathered a wide range of tools and guides specifically designed to ensure you achieve and maintain the highest standard of radiograph quality possible.

In addition to the main auditing and reporting tools, we have included an interactive sensor placement guide, a step by step positioning guide for panoral radiographs, an indepth paper discussing the affects of sensor size and orientation on radiograph quality, a montitor calibration guide and a facility to seek an unbiaised, confidential opinion of what may be affecting your radiograph quality if you are not sure.

3. Official Guidelines

Did you know you are required to calibrate your computer screens? Or even how often you are meant to do it? Do you know long you are required by law to keep radiographs? In a recent survey only 1 dentist out of 15 knew the correct retention period for their patient's radiographs even though they were all convinced they knew the correct answer.

Make sure you're not caught out and access the latest guidelines that apply to your practice.

"With the CQC requirement for periodic radiographic audit, it is important to have an easy and user friendly way of monitoring the quality of radiographs taken in dental practice. The X-ray QA radiographic audit is a very carefully thought out and well constructed programme that is easy to use. It not only satisfies the minimum requirements of CQC, but also gives a meaningful breakdown as to where improvements can be made. While it is not possible to score 100%, patterns of errors are easily identified and can be corrected. It helps clinicians to compare their radiographs against a benchmark and with the aid of Guides and Tools and the ability to contact Clark Dental with specific questions, they will be able to get better quality radiographs with more consistency. I thoroughly recommend this programme for all clinicians."

"I have been using Schick Technology x ray sensors now for 15 years and doing regular audits has always been time consuming; until now. I was fortunate enough to be involved with the Xray QA quality assurance program which allows either continuous auditing of images or it can audit a specific set of images. With a little learning the program takes all of the hard work out of dental radiography audits and is a fantastic way of keeping up to date with all of the demands of running a modern surgery. Once completed the program produces a document report which is professional and complete. The support team are always very helpful if help is needed. I will be using this audit tool to keep my surgery fully compliant in the least painful way possible!"
