According to the Texas Department of State Health Services Radiation Safety Licensing Branch, dental providers must obtain a Certificate of Dental X-Ray Registration for their x-ray machines. Providers will need to obtain a separate certificate for a Laser machine. These certificates of registration do not have expiration dates on them, however providers must notify the Radiation Safety Licensing Branch of the DSHS, in writing and with a signature of the Doctor, owner, CEO, President or RSO, for changes to be made and a new/valid certificate to be issued. Listed below are changes that would require a request for a new certificate.
- Address change
- Adding or deleting equipment
- A change in RSO (Radiation Safety Officer)
- Any change that would make the certificate invalid
