Strongly opposed

I am strongly opposed to the proposed ammendment. There is already a great deal of confusion among the public regarding the organization of dentistry in the US. This ammendment would only further muddy the waters. General practicioners who seek to limit their practice to a given area of dentistry should be required to prominently disclose that they are a general dentist with a limited practice.
