Specifically the Iowa Dental Board is giving notice of intended action to amend Chapter 10, “General Requirements,” Iowa Administrative Code. The proposed amendments specify that a dental hygienist may, under the REPORT ON direct supervision of a dentist, place provisional appliances. Public hearings for notice of intended actions by the Iowa Dental Board are simply an opportunity for any public PROVISIONAL and professional individual to comment on the notice of intended action. These hearings are extremely important because they provide an opportunity to express concerns before the intended action is approved at an Iowa Dental APPLIANCES Board meeting at a later date. The profession should use the public hearings to express concerns and provide input about the intended action. The Iowa Dental Board is receptive to input from all members of the dental Legislative Report on Provisional Appliances profession. by Stephen Thies, DDS The proposed action to allow dental hygienists to place Legislative Chair provisional appliances should cause concern. The board should explain the intent of this change and the reason for provisional placement by hygienists. Provisional restora- tions include temporary crowns, bridges, and orthodontic appliances. Is the board intending to allow dental hygien- ists to place all of these restorations? Why? Consider that formally trained dental assistants learn how to fabricate provisional restorations as part of their formal education. Dental assistants sit chairside with a dentist and daily assist with provisional fabrication. Yet formally trained dental assistants are still required to take an expanded function course to legally “fabricate and remove provisional restorations.” Expanded function dental assistants are only allowed to “fabricate and remove provisional restorations”. They are NOT allowed to place provisional restorations. Why is the board proposing to allow dental hygienists to place provi- sional restorations? Dental hygiene education does not include fabrication, placement, or removal of provisional restorations training. Dental hygienists do not have the education or experience to place provisional appliances. Allowing dental hygienists to place provisional appliances is not a necessary or wor- thy change. The date of the public hearing has passed. However, comments may still be made to the board before the next board meeting. Please express your concerns to the Iowa Dental Board.
