Dental radiologists start out in general dentistry or surgical dentistry before seeking specialization in radiology.
Oral and maxillofacial radiology is a branch of dentistry which concerns diagnostic imaging in the fields of face and dental structures.
Dental imaging accounts for approximately 40 % of all X-ray examinations, profound knowledge of this topic is essential not only for the dentist but also for the clinical radiologist.
