These are the only US States that do not allow the use of the Nomad hand held x-ray device. Actually some do but with such silly restrictions that it becomes unusable. If you live in one of these states and want to right to use this new device you can help by contacting your state dental association or the state regulatory agency and express your wishes. Regulators have been known to drag their feet on new devices if they perceive that there is little public demand for it. So, if you want it you will have to ask.
If you are not familiar with Nomad you can check it out here. If you are building or remodeling an office there is absolutely no excuse not to consider a Nomad. It is portable!!! That means you can use one Nomad in place of three or four wall mounted units. That is of course unless you live in Kentucky, Delaware, Indiana, Alabama, Minnesota, North Carolina or New Hampshire.
