ITR Certification for the RDAEF2

Effective 1/1/2015, RDAEFs licensed on or after 1/1/2010 became authorized to perform two (2) additional duties in both a dental office setting or in a public health setting, head start program, preschool program or community clinic.  Those duties are:

  2. Interim Therapeutic Restorations: to remove soft material from the tooth using only a hand instrument, without the use of a rotary instrument, and subsequent placement of an adhesive restorative material

EFs certified in ITR may perform these duties without direct supervision using the standards and protocols set by the dentist.
