Abstract: Thermoluminescent dosimetry was employed to measure the efficiency of the lead barriers in the Dental X-ray operatories. A monthly radiation dose of 2.7 milli rad detected by one dosime­ ter, located outside an operatory. The remaining forty seven dosimeters placed in the corridors did not register any dose. The incorporated lead thickness in the walls of the operatories was found to be 2mm, ten times than the required lead thickness. The annual occupational radia­ tion exposures around the operatories was estimated to be well below the backround radiation levels in City of Riyadh.
