RADIATION PROTECTION ADVISER (RPA)
MEDICAL PHYSICS EXPERT (MPE)
If, in common with the majority of dentists, you use x-ray machines you will need not only an RPA but an MPE.
We provide both these services.
Although we do not offer QA testing or servicing, you will find a list of companies that we work with on our 'Links' page.
LASER PROTECTION ADVISER (LPA)
If your practice uses lasers, the Control of Artificial Optical Radiation at Work Regulations 2010 requires you to have made a 'suitable and sufficient risk assessment' and have appropriate working procedures (Local Rules).
The MHRA 'Guidance for the Safe Use of Lasers, Intense Pulse Light Systems and LEDs in Medical, Surgical, Dental & Aestheic Practices' strongly suggests that dental laser users should have consulted and appointed an LPA.
Although CQC does not require the appointment of an LPA in England, it is required in Scotland and Wales. However, it is clear that dental laser users may find it helpful to have access to the expert advice an LPA can provide.
The following two pages provide more information about the services we provide for both Radiation & Laser Protection
