Gingival scaling

I have been trying to find out if gingival scaling can be completed when the doctor is out of the office. I know that SRP cannot be completed and I wasn’t sure where the new gingival scaling falls without dentist supervision.

Each state falls under different supervision rules because hygienists are regulated by the state. Because of this, its hard to give an exact answer. If you look at your state’s Dental Practice Act, all of the allowable duties and supervision requirements will be listed. If the Dental Practice Act for your state isn’t clear, don’t hesitate to contact the Board directly for a definitive answer.
