STRONGLY oppose
 

Please protect the citizens of Virginia by not allowing general dentists to advertise as specialists.  Would you let a primary care physician advertize as a cardiologist?  I think not.  As specialists we study for several years after dental school to limit our scope of practice to a single area.  Allowing general dentists to claim the same level of training/standard of care would endanger the public.

Do not pass this ammendment.
