speciality recognition

Extremelymisleading to the public.  Patients come into my office not knowing the difference between a general dentist who calls himself an oral surgeon and someone who spent five more years to actually become one.  I have had many patients who have told them that they are just as good and we will just charge them a lot more.  Insurance pays us all the same!  E-Mail me if you want to some of the horror stories I hasve heard.
