Another state, NH, wants to allow this. In 45 plus years I had 3 hygenist that I had for many years. The first from age 4 to 20ish when she retired. I had the dentist until he retired when I was 34. Hell no would I have wanted her to fill my teeth, I still can't believe I ever let her clean them. The second major hygenist was with my second dentist, I changed dentists because of the hygenist, way too brutal and I believe lost a filling because of her brutish ways. The third with my third dentist I have had for close to 10 years. She is quite good, the dentist she is fantastic. I am not sure if I would want her to put a needle in my mouth. Your thoughts/
