All dentists who wish to prescribe, order and take dental CT scans must register with the College as a prescribing dentist. This includes all dentists who are specialists in oral and maxillofacial radiology and all dentists who practise in hospital dental departments.
Every dental facility where a dental CT scanner is installed and operated must have a facility permit issued by the College. The process for obtaining this permit is two-fold, namely:
Once the Application Form and Registration Form(s) have been received and reviewed by the College and found to be in order, written confirmation will be forwarded to you outlining next steps for obtaining the provisional facility permit.
Within six months after receiving the provisional facility permit from the College, an in-office inspection will be arranged as a requirement for an Annual Facility Permit to be issued.
