Strongly Opposed
 

I am strongly opposed to the proposed amendment as I believe it would mislead and confuse patients.  The current guidelines provide patients with the assurance that the specialist they would see is educated and trained in the speciality and has completed a rigorous course of study that is subject to periodic reviewed by the Council on Dental Accreditation.  We owe our patients nothing less.
