I had an experience today where a dental assistant was allowed to place a temporary crown. The bite was off and as she had already cemented it, she began to use the dental drill inside my mouth. After about six tries, she left to get the dentist who was able to adjust the bite. I have NEVER had a RDA use a drill in my mouth. Once I get the permanent crown, I will never go to this dentist again. Was this action legal? Are RDAS now allowed to drill inside of a patient’s mouth?
