The oscillatory screening effects on the transition bremsstrahlung radiation due to the polarization interaction between the electron and shielding cloud are investigated in dense quantum plasmas. The impact-parameter analysis with the modified Debye-Hückel potential is applied to obtain the bremsstrahlung radiation cross section as a function of the quantum wave number, impact parameter, photon energy, and projectile energy. The results show that the oscillatory quantum screening effect strongly suppresses the transition bremsstrahlung radiation spectrum in dense quantum plasmas. It is also found that the oscillatory quantum screening effect is more significant near the maximum peak of the bremsstrahlung radiation cross section. In addition, the maximum peak of the bremsstrahlung radiation cross section is getting close to the center of the shielding cloud as increasing quantum wave number. It is interesting to note that the range of the bremsstrahlung photon energy would be broadened with an increase of the oscillatory screening effect. It is also found that the oscillatory screening effects on the transition bremsstrahlung spectrum decreases with increasing projectile energy.
