Srongly opposed

Advertising and marketing are cheapening our profession as currently allowed.  We all recognize how well it works.  Allowing non-residency trained individuals to profess non-accredited specialty status is the beginning of the slippery slope that will end with a public distrust of all dentists at an unprecidented level.  Please don't make these changes.  You are charged with protecting the public, and this leads us all in the oposite direction.
