By law and by practice, the dentist is responsible for diagnosing conditions of the teeth and jaws. Nevertheless, the whole team of dental professionals should have knowledge of how basic dental diseases appear on radiographic images. This knowledge will help the auxiliary to understand the importance of high-quality, diagnostic radiographic images and will, in the long run, make him or her that much more valuable to the dental team.
