The taking of a digital scan (3D scan/iTero scan), if used for the purpose of creating an orthodontic appliance, is the practice of dentistry. Any appliance created from a digital scan taken by a digital scan technician should be inspected by the dentist before being dispensed to the patient. Any patient treated with an appliance created from a digital scan should be seen in-person by a dentist within six months of the scan.
