Intraoral Scan Technician - public comment submission

As with any intraoral diagnostic record, a licensed dentist must be involved with the evaluation and delivery of oral appliances and restorations produced from an intraoral digital scan.  This standard has been in place to protect patients for generations of providers.  New technologies have not yet replaced the role of in-person doctor care and expertise in delivery of dental treatments.  Respectfully submitted, - David R. Hughes, DDS
