STRONGLY OPPOSE! Can’t believe this would even be considered!

General dentists can’t be allowed to promote to public as specialists because THEY ARE NOT! They don’t have the training and knowledge and often get themselves in over their head when trying to do orthodontics. This can be detrimental to the health of patients and their teeth and patients should know this risk and that they are choosing a non-specialist to move their teeth.
