Who is Qualified to Affix Crowns?
Is anyone other than a licensed dentist allowed/authorized to affix a crown? (i.e. Is a dental assistant or hygienist allowed to affix a crown without a licensed dentists supervision?).
Assistants or hygienists may be authorized, but they need to be under licensed dentist supervision.
