Disregard this one too
I can only answer #'s 1-5. I hope this helps.
1. RDH's are licensed to give local anesthesia (out of state grads, and graduates from the 80's or earlier need to take local anesthesia and nitrous oxide courses). Some hygienists, however, choose to practice even if they are not allowed to give local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, soft tissue curettage. They would just have to ask the DDS/DMD, or RDH (who is legally allowed to do so) to do it for them.
2. Recent California dental hygiene grads (RDH) are licensed to administer nitrous oxide (see #1).
3. HIPAA requires signed release forms.
5. Current CPR certification is required for license renewal.
I hope I get some inputs from other states
Why are you doing this? Just pick an answer and send it in!!!
I have my old copy of the Oregon Juresprudence Exam, and apparently the questions have not changed. The Oregon Dental Practice Act is available online. All the answers are in it. A good way to look for answers is to use the search feature of the PDF viewer...type in keywords and it finds the section that is relevant.
