Establishing an in person doctor/patient relationship for clinical dental exam and diagnosis can not be completed from a digital intra oral scan.  Fabrication of restorations or appliances usually comes after this step.  The safety and long term dental health of the citizens of Virginia should be paramount.

I agree with the AAO's stated position as previously listed in the comments.
