Regarding how effective the PAs have been: How come there is still a huge Health Care Access issue that is worse than 40 years ago?
That's why mid-level provider is not the solution for Dental Access issue!

Regarding Off site supervision: Dentistry is much more complex than medicine where they can consult over the phone with description of the patient's data. There is the hands on part too!
