For all things related to supervision levels, laws, and allowable duties, check out your states Dental Practice Act. The New Jersey Practice Act can be found here: https://www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/den/Pages/regulations.aspx
It’s a good idea to review the Practice Act for your state every once in a while to make sure you are working within your Scope of Practice (things change once in a while). Also, it’s always best to get this type of info directly from the source to assure accuracy.
