STRONGLY OPPOSE, YOUR ROLE IS TO PROTECT UNSUSPECTING PUBLIC
 
This is a representation of the skills of the provider, or false advertising. The public doesnt undertand that these dentists do not have adequate training. Many times, the paying patients are their first guinea pigs. I have attended CE courses where the instructors have said " if you wany to start doing these procedures, try asking around your relatives and friends for volunteers". Proper licensing and credentials is th only way the public can discern the difference. In my specialty, i have seen a lot of messed up cases to where i can t even help them now because too much irreversible dammage has been done. We need better regulations.
