Requirements for Doctor/Patient relationship and use of digital scans

I strongly agree with the importance of a "hands on" clinical examination by a licensed dental professional for all patients seeking dental treatment.  The information gathered in a thorough examination is paramount to making good treatment decisions and avoiding deleterious ones. 

Dentistry/Orthodontics is a treatment not a commodity and needs to regulated for the safety of the public and patients.
