This is the first NC dental radiation manual available for online use. Our online manuals are fully customizable to your practice and are perfect for dental practices with multiple offices or DSOs. Our online manual portal allows for your manual to be fully customizable to your practice and acts as an all-in-one system for ALL your manuals – whether they’re from TMC or not!
Written Radiation Safety Plan
Our manual provides an all-encompassing written plan that covers all aspects of radiation safety including radiation safety protocols, personnel training, quality control, equipment maintenance, and more!
A written radiation protection plan is required by the North Carolina Regulations for Protection Against Radiation to be developed, documented, and implemented for each unique facility. Because developing a customized radiation safety plan can be challenging, we provide you with all the guidance and information you need to modify the manual to fit your office and stay compliant.
Every dental office is unique which is why it’s important to have practice-specific protocols that cater to your office’s individual needs, equipment, and processes. This manual includes the topics: appropriate use of dosimeter, safety data sheets, PPE, X-ray protocols, and various sample operating procedures.

Proper maintenance of equipment is crucial to ensure that it is functioning properly and producing accurate results. TMC’s online manual provides detailed information on equipment inventory, maintenance, and documentation required by NC.

Quality Control Plan
A quality control plan is essential to ensure that all radiation safety protocols are being followed and that the equipment is functioning properly. We have included a complete quality control plan to help dental offices ensure image quality and exposure is as low as reasonably achievable.
