If you would like to post the updated version of this notice, please read the following information:
When filling out the Notice to Employees, please be sure to list
http://www.doh.wa.gov/CommunityandEnvironment/Radiation/XRay/XRayEquipmentRegistration/WACXRay.aspx under employer requirements as the location where all required documents are available.
The Radioactive Materials License Number does not apply to dentists, as they are not required to annually inform their employees of radiation exposure due to the low exposure levels in dental offices.
Your X-Ray Registration number can be found on your latest inspection results. If you are unable to locate these results, you can call 1-800-299-9729 or email email@example.com to obtain your registration number.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to call Emily Lovell at 206-973-5241 or email her at Emily@wsda.org.
