The Act authorizes dental hygienists to perform dental screenings without supervision under certain circumstances. The Act also provides that each person who receives a dental screening must be informed in writing of the limitations of a dental screening and advised to seek a more thorough examination by a dentist. Additionally, the Act provides that individual hygienists shall not charge fees for such screenings.
