    The Maine Board of Dental Examiners is now accepting comments on a proposed rule to remove language for a pilot program which allowed Independent Practice Dental Hygienists to process radiographs. The pilot program expired March 13, 2015. The proposed rule removes the pilot program language, the reporting and inspection requirements, the exposure and findings form, and the geographic restrictions. Further the proposed rule retains the protocols established in the prior adoption of the rule with regard to written agreements with a licensed dentist and referral protocols. A public hearing is expected to be held on Aug. 14 and the comment deadline is Aug. 24.
