If a dental scan is being used to produce an appliance that will be in the mouth, then the scan should be conducted under the supervision of a licensed dentist and no appliance should be prescribed except by a dentist licensed in Virginia who is treating the patient. No treatment should be provided for a patient unless the treating dentist has examined the patient. This is for the safety of the patient and is common sense.
