Support of Dental Scanning Technician
I strongly support the comments made by the AAO, as well as the definitions and training protocols that the VDA has proposed to the board. It is important for a dentist or orthodontist who has initiated treatment or fabrication of a dental appliance via teledentistry (where the patient was scanned by specifically a dental scan technician) to verify the scan for accuracy and the appropriate fit of the appliance prior to delivery.
