(A) Except as provided in division (B) of this section, a dental x-ray machine operator may perform radiologic procedures only if a dentist is providing direct supervision. Direct supervision does not require the dentist to observe each radiologic procedure performed by the operator, but does require that the dentist be present at the location where the operator is performing radiologic procedures for purposes of consulting with and directing the operator while performing the procedures.
(B) A dental x-ray machine operator may perform radiologic procedures for a patient when the supervising dentist is not physically present at the location where the radiologic procedures are performed if the supervising dentist examined the patient not more than one year prior to the date the dental x-ray machine operator performs the radiologic procedures and the supervising dentist has ordered the radiologic procedures.
