Digital Impressions are equivalent to final impressions

A digital impression made with an intra-oral scanner of teeth on a live patient is equivalent to a final analog impression previously defined by the BOD. Therefore, the definition of "final impression" should be updated in order to regulate that only dentists with a valid license are making these final impression, in both analog form and intra-oral scanner digital file form.
