Mobile phones these days are becoming an important part of our life. This is one of the communication's most important media. The exponential rise in mobile phones has increased the amount of non-ionizing accompanying radio waves over the past two decades, the potential risks of human body exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields are a major concern for society. Although mobile phone familiarization and dependency is growing at an alarming rate, the effects of human health due to radiation exposure, the impact of blue light on human eyes, macular degradation and its impact have been discussed and become a subject of intense debate. The rate at which the human body absorbs radiation is measured by the Specific Absorption Rate, and government regulatory agencies in many countries have set their maximum levels for modern handsets. It is even more intimidating because this radiation is invisible and enters and leaves our bodies without our knowledge. The rise in temperature on the surface of the brain caused by radiation waves is 0.3 degrees at the most. It is not known that this type of temperature rise has biological significance. The brain's temperature normally fluctuates by about one degree, and cells become damaged only after a five-degree increase in temperature. According to the cell phone radiation test, men's sperm cells are damaged, causing them to lose reproductive changes and suffer mental health damage due to radiation from cell phones.

Objective: This study focused on the evaluation of the knowledge and x-rays of specific dental professionals with highlight in view of education on these regularradiographic practices.
Materials and methods: A poll was conveyed among 500 dentists of Odisha, India, which were based demographic details including the use of radiographic intraoperative devices.
Results: All private experts were utilizing conventional X-ray machines. 85% said that dental X- ray beams were hurtful. 92% knew about NCRP/ICRP , 71% aware of ALARA principle, while just 56% knew about AERB rules. Yet, certain radiation protective estimates like utilizing lead apron, lead barriers and position distance rule were not followed by the greater part of the private specialists.
Conclusions: The current study shows that majority of dentists in Odisha didn’t practice rehearse Methods for radiation safety to restrict patients' excessive contact to radiation. To improve the overall dentists' radioactive knowledge-dose control procedure, efforts must be made and technical education.
